About the artist

Mulambö's (1995, Saquarema, RJ) artistic practice seeks to re-value the symbols of suburban existence in Rio de Janeiro and their relations to structures of power. The artist explores everything from painting, the making of flags and objects, to the internet as a work platform. From a family with tradition in Rio’s famous Carnival, he makes art to affirm that there is no museum in the world like our grandmother's house. He has presented his works in solo exhibitions at MAR - Museu de Arte do Rio, Centro Municipal de Arte Hélio Oiticica and Portas Vilaseca Gallery in Rio de Janeiro. Outside Brazil, he has exhibited at Das Schaufenster space in Seattle and in the group exhibition "SWEAT",  at Haus der Kunst, in Munich (on display until 2022). His works are part of important Brazilian institutional collections, such as the Museum of Art of Rio - MAR (Rio de Janeiro, RJ); Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo (São Paulo, SP) and the Ingá Museum (Niterói, RJ).
