Brazilian artist Antonio Dias (*1944) embarked in the sixties with ironic multimedia works inspired by Pop Art. With his existential approach, Dias does much more than create exact reproductions of the world of consumer goods by playfully including Eros, sex, and political oppression. During the military dictatorship, Dias left Brazil and moved to Europe, where he developed an oeuvre of Conceptual painting, full of formal elegance, in which he wove together political themes, ideas about the nature of art, and personal impressions. Antonio Dias never makes one-dimensional artistic statements, opting instead to allow his works to remain in a state of enigmatic ambiguity.
