He became involved with the Frente, a group of radical artists influenced by modernist and abstract art, with color and geometry with appreciation for artists like Mondrian and Paul Klee. In 1959, he joined with Amilcar de Castro, Franz Weissmann and Lygia Clark to found the movement Neoconcreto which only lasted two years. At that time, he came down to bidimensionality and was creating installations of wood painted in strong colors with the series “Nucleos” (1960) and “Penetráveis” (1960-1979).
In the series “Bólides” (1963-1964) where he works with smallboxes is that the three-dimensionality gets a less abstract direction in his work. In “Parangolés” (1964-1965), he uses the samba culture as inspiration for a series with intent to cause the desire to dance, to move, in the viewer.
Hope you have enjoyed this artistic vision!!
