Biography

Antonio Henrique Amaral is a key figure in Brazilian and Latin American art. Born in 1935, he developed his signature fantastical style during the second half of the 20th century, coming of age under the rule of the military dictatorship installed in Brazil in 1964. His visceral and allegorical works deal with political violence, existential discontent and erotic desire through an experimental approach that challenges authoritarianism.
