Daniel de Paula

The multiple propositions of Daniel de Paula (b. 1987, Brazilian) reflect upon the production of space as the reproduction of dominant abstract ideologies such as capital, property, labor, and value.

Through a posture that is not constrained to the artistic field, his practice is intersected by notions of human and physical geography, revealing his interest in understanding the complex social, political, economic, and historical forces concealed within our surrounding material reality.

Daniel de Paula holds a BFA in visual art from Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado in São Paulo and also studied astrophysics and human geography. The artist and researcher has had solo exhibitions at Galeria Jaqueline Martins, BR (2023), LABOR Gallery, MX (2023), Galleria Francesca Minini, IT (2020), and Kunsthal Gent, BE (2019), and took part in group exhibitions such as the Biennale de Lyon, FR, São Paulo Bienal, BR, The Renaissance Society, and Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea, IT.
