OUR NEW PLACE

Guga Ferraz

"In his work, the artist addresses issues related to urban violence, the relationships between the individual and the city, and the city itself as a place. "

Guga Ferraz (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 1974) entered the Architecture and Urbanism course at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (FAU-UFRJ) in 1992, but interrupted his graduation in 1996 to study Sculpture at the University's School of Fine Arts Federal do Rio de Janeiro (EBA-UFRJ), course he completed in 2001. Architecture and urbanism, however, are still present in a marked way in Guga's trajectory.

In his work, the artist addresses issues related to urban violence, the relationships between the individual and the city, and the city itself as a place. He often reveals the processes of urban transformation that Rio de Janeiro went through.
