18 Nov 2021, 5 pm
SP–Arte launches, in partnership with MJournal, the series “Open studios”, dedicated to contemporary art. On the occasion of the 17th SP–Arte, we visited the workspaces of artists whose works were at the Fair to get to know their daily artistic practices from up close.
Featured on the series are artists Thiago Martins de Melo, Thomaz Rosa, Moisés Patrício and Luana Vitra.
MJournal is one of the most prominent Latin American cultural publications, with an eye for art, imagery, fashion, society and culture.
On the first episode, Thiago Martins de Melo talks about his maranhense roots and how being from an Amazonian region impacts his artistic practice.

The second episode features Thomaz Rosa, where he shares details of his process and explains the everyday references he takes to his studio.
The third episode features Moisés Patrício, where he explains the connection between art and spirituality, ritualistic moments and how he imprints his own memory in his painting.
On the fourth and last episode, Luana Vitra explains the story behind her constant use of iron on her works and comments her poetic practice starting from a “longing of origins”.
