Túlio Pinto

Born in 1974, Brasília, Brazil.
 
Túlio Pinto experiments with the balance of different materials in his works, involving their size, weight, and density.
The creation of his works avails itself of the principles of transience and variability of materials: “The materials themselves already have their sculptural potential. Tulio Pinto’s own function is an articulator who punctuates materials inherent force.
The word ‘antithetical’ seems to apply like an adhesive to Túlio Pinto’s works, as if a pendulum were swinging between order and chaos, and a dual nature could be perceived in the pieces: the geometric and the formless (or the opacity and the transparency; the lightness and the weight), in an apparent opposition.
When we put these elements together as an integral part of a single system, the pieces become ideograms – just like an unspeakable direct speculation on the world that unfolds in front of us.

Tulio Pinto, who graduated from UFRGS – Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul with a degree in visual arts and a specialization in sculpture in 2009, lives and works in Porto Allegre, Brazil.
