Having lived in São Paulo since he was seventeen, Alexandre Furcolin brings the city and nature, the wild and the sophisticated, as well as the personal and the social into dialogue in a vast panorama capturing the beauty and chaos that surround him. Through photography, painting, and drawing, multiple media marry in a magma of bright colors and intertwined lines. His visual work is a sensual, multifaceted diary that welcomes metamorphosis and the beauty of new languages. Here, São Paulo is blessed with a sense of urgency and calm.
I view this book as a continuous flow of interconnected subjects, as a web of events that orchestrate the city’s singularities and visual strength.
