TALES OF A LIVING CITY
Gustavo Amaral is a Brazilian artist who creates photographic collages that explore the human form. His works capture simultaneously the body in its external form, and the inner emotions and psyche that exist beneath its shell.
Gustavo Amaral weaves, glues and sews the fragmentation of himself in paper, fabric and textures. Using his own photographs and images from old magazines and books, the artist interprets personal feelings in his collages. Themes such as the human body, emotions, nature, architecture and the collective consciousness are prominent throughout his work.
