Geraldo de Barros

Geraldo de Barros (1923 – 1998), is a Brazilian painter, photographer and designer.
He was one of the exponents of vanguard in Brazilian art, a precursor of concrete art and pioneer in abstract photography.
He was also active as a furniture designer from the mid 50’s (Unilabor) until the end of the eighties (Hobjeto), deeply involved both in the function of design and in the social structure of the economy he was actuating in.

Geraldo de Barros is represented in Brazil by Luciana Brito Gallery in Switzerland by DIP Contemporary and in London by Augusta Edwards Fine Arts

Some furniture pieces are re-edited in Brazil by Dpot
