Item Info

The Angolan artist Nelo Teixiera – throughout our visit to his studio he shares how his life experiences, have been the core reference of his multidisciplinary work. Nelo Teixeira (b. M’Banza-Kongo, Angola, 1975) studied painting and sculpture through the National Union of Visual Arts (UNAP) workshops. He favors paint as well as recycled waste, like metal, plastic, aluminum, and glass. He also makes masks, a family tradition, and uses urban spaces as inspiration, questioning the borders between the urban ghetto and the new city under construction.
