Pedro Saci

Pedro Saci began his research in visual arts in graffiti, taking the city as a medium as much as a subject and source of material. As an architecture student, the relationship with urban space has always been an issue for the artist, who began to develop a very unique relationship with his surroundings, apprehending the rapid growth of the metropolis in parallel with the incessant (and growing) bombardment of images and information that are dumped in the most different networks.

His production is deeply experimental – ranging from the interest aroused by some detail seen on the ground or in the sky to the obsession with scribbling and drawing made in profusion. The artist explores different materials, mainly those that can be easily found in the urban landscape. There is a certain precariousness in part of the works, made in an improvised way or with the incorporation of what is at hand.

In this sense, Saci dialogues with some aspects of the work of artists who are central to the expansion of the means and supports used in contemporary art, such as Tom Sachs and Cory Arcangel, either through the incorporation and subversion of iconic brands such as image in the works, or through the creation of simulacra that continue to have the same utility as the original (or as close to it as possible), either through the frequent use of contemporary internet languages such as gifs and digital montages.

Pedro Saci graduated in Architecture and Urbanism from Faculdade Presbiteriana Mackenzie. He is a student at Instituto Tomie Ohtake's EntrOpica School, where he attends training and work discussion classes, theoretical classes and mentorship with professors. Among his exhibitions are: Dekmantel Festival, Flag Installation – “Beyoncè and Jay”; South Main Gallery Vancouver, “Have a Nike day”; Fu Art Gallery Miami, “A walk through non-defined places”, and King Cap São Paulo, “Processes”.
