INVENTORY

Henrique de Fran├ža (1982) is a Brazilian visual artist born and raised in Sao Paulo, where he currently lives and works. His intricate figure drawings explore the blank space of the paper and the possibilities of lines, shadows and negative spaces. The artist's starting point is from random juxtaposed images in order to tell evasive, nostalgic narratives. Their dialogue exists between the urban and rural, in the present social context with shades of a recent past.
