PAULO WHITAKER

Paulo Galvão Whitaker de Assumpção (São Paulo, São Paulo, 1958). Painter and draftsman. Graduated in art education at the University for Development of the State of Santa Catarina – Udesc / SC, in 1984. He takes part in several exhibitions, including the 20th and 25th editions of the Bienal de São Paulo, in 1989 and 2002. Between 1991 and 1992, he is a resident artist at Plug In, Winnipeg, Canada, at E-Werk Freiburg in Freiburg, Germany, and in 1999 at The Banff Center for the Arts in Banff, Canada. In the late 1980s, appear in his drawings and paintings, simple lines, colorful masses with irregular contours, curvilinear and geometric shapes on a monochromatic background. From 1997, these forms begin to group and juxtapose, and geometric figures as rectangles are added to the composition. In the production of his collages, he uses drawings made by himself in other periods, creating a dialogue between the current and the previous.
