TIAGO CAMPOS

Tiago lives in Mairiporã, in the interior of São Paulo and seeks to address social, political and economic issues in his production.
The discovery of dyslexia happened as an adult and brought an understanding of questions and behaviors of a lifetime, especially in relation to the creative process.

SMILE!

The visual artist Tiago Campos didn't imagine himself as dyslexic. Only after in life, he gave more attention to some of the characteristics that always had accompanied him. His images dive into many aspects of society. "Explosive Artefact", confectioned above a reutilised wooden support and framed, refers to the prejudice suffered by the black and homeless Rafael Braga, arrested for carrying a bottle of disinfectant under the pretext that he would use it to manufacture explosives. "Smile!" jokes with the constant vigilance that we are subject to, losing privacy, physically, via images, and by the tracking of data in social networks. "Ballooning" focuses, with beauty and subtlety, the feeling of absence of a national future, with the symbolic image of a balloon floating adrift in an empty scene, without being able to imagine what could be its future.

SABIÁ ORANJEIRA

The delicacy of nature arises in this piece as an affirmation of how apparent simplicity has an enormous density. Representing a live being is always an exercise of humbleness because it demands searching for self-knowledge in the sense of deepening the dialogue between emotion, technique, and creativity to obtain the desired effect.
Painting a bird means not only to understand its mechanisms, but also to dive into the manners in which it connects to space. The set gets more strength when there is a visual reasoning that leads to dialogue between what was chosen to be painted and what surrounds it.

Therefore, there is a strengthening of art as a plastic intelligence to uncover the world.

TIAGO
by himself

My dyslexia is a comorbidity with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Although it always accompanied me, it was only after I was an adult that I became aware of this comorbidity, which led to many questions and behaviors being understood, especially with regard to the processes of artistic creation.
Within the arts, my productions have always sought to bring themes that address social, economic and political issues, mainly in relation to racism and other forms of discrimination, with most of the works being constructed with painting techniques and some forms of street art. like graffiti and stenciling.
I believe that both dyslexia and ASD directly influence my productions, however, if this is a good or bad thing, I may never know.
