Carlito Carvalhosa lives and works in Rio de Janeiro. Artist from the 80’s, he was part of the group “House 7” from São Paulo. Carlito’s international career has been represented by Sonnabend in New York. Abroad, he has already showed his work in Cuba, Ecuador, France, Holland, Germany and MoMA – New York in 2011, becoming the first Brazilian artist alive to have a solo exhibition at the museum. His work and technique involves painting, sculpture and “immaterial” installations, applying sound and light and developing partnerships with composers like Phillip Glass and Arnaldo Antunes.
“The movement [the artist] leads to a direct link between form and matter – be it more constructive or more expressive – to its irremediable dissociation, also incorporates a lot of mishaps that have undergone a contemporary way.” Rodrigo Naves.
