Willys de Castro ’s exhibition in London


The exhibition of Brazilian artist Willys de Castro will be on show at the Cecilia Brunson Projects gallery in London, which aims to introduce the public to the most prominent names of modern and contemporary Brazilian art.

The project has already featured exhibitions by the likes of Claudio Tozzi and Alfredo Volpi and now a unique collection of work by Willys de Castro: From Paintings to Objects 1950 – 1965 – 21 works in total, from paintings to the famous Objetos Ativos (Active Objects), which catalogues the artist’s early years.

Willys was recognised for his originality and was considered to be one of the most innovative Brazilian artists, so inevitably he attracted the attention of international critics. Despite graduating with a Chemistry degree, his love for the abstract always made him stand out. He left a strong legacy in the field of industrial and graphic design, as one of the founders of the Associação Brasileira de Desenho Industria (Brazilian Association of Industrial Design) and the Galeria de Arte Novas Tendência (Art Gallery of New Trends). Amongst some of his most renowned work are the Objetos Ativos and Pluriobjetos collections.

The show is in association with Almeida e Dale, and curated by Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro.
