Biography: Thiago Martins de Melo develops studies in the field of painting, presenting polysemic and densely narrative discussions through his work. The visual nature of his work is fundamental. Martins de Melo’s practice is situated in a revisionary tense: it refers to cultural memory via a medium endowed with historicity, i.e. painting, and contemporaneously reinvents historical characters, culturally diverse populations and Brazil’s spiritual, peasant, mythical, indigenous and African entities. These characters are called upon to return to the battle ground on the artist’s canvases, conveying their struggle and their history.
