Born in Sao Paulo, Brasil, in 1982, Franzão is one of the most dynamic and provocative artists among Brazil’s new generation of talent.
Enlightened by an early background in literature and communications, the work of Rodrigo Franzão reveals an incantatory discourse between the artist, his vision and his uninhibited involvement with found materials. KATHARSIS, his actual show in New York, transforms this dialogue into an exploration of the human form moving from aspects of beauty to biological condition. The grounding force of Franzão’s line combined with the vibrant play of geometric abstraction gives KATHARSIS a rhythmic power. The work is further enhanced by the artist’s facile use of mixed media and a brilliant sense of color - an echoing pulse of his native country.
You can visit his actual show KATHARSIS at the National Arts Club at the Marquis Gallery in New York from September 28th till October 24th 2015.
