Afonso Tostes

 
 

SCULPTOR, PAINTER

Born 1965 in Belo Horizonte.
Works and lives in Rio de Janeiro.

The work of Afonso Tostes investigates structures and forms by creating sculptures from demolition wood
he gathers from sites all over the city. His sculptures are placed strategically in order to direct the viewer’s
attention toward the structure, the form, as well as the balance and the dependency between its parts.
