Francisco Hurtz


Brazil, São Paulo, 1985. Lives and works in São Paulo. Through the use of lines and empty space in the pictorial surface the artist decontextualizes images and rearranges them in his research. His work approaches collecting images, passing by the homoerotic question and the relations between bodies in space.

Shows 10 +20, Room of Wonders and other by Emma Thomas Gallery, Gardens Delights, Explicit Content and The Relationship Between Bodies and Spaces I, his solo exhibition by Mezanino Gallery in 2011, Reflected Mirror - Surrealism and Brazilian Contemporary Art in Hélio Oiticica Arts Centre in Rio de Janeiro in 2012 and several other shows and international publications.
