Pá.ú.lú is a Brazilian born artist based in the UK. From his garden studio in Buckinghamshire old forgotten objects get a second life.
Pa.u.lu‘s works are inspired by the stories that the found objects he is working with tell. Pá.ú.lú has since he was a young artist used paper as the medium of his works and has created pieces using origami and paper cutting techniques. After moving to the UK he started to explore other materials such as wire and found objects. During the Foundation course in Art and Design 2015-2016, he discovered assemblage art, and has come to understand that this is his preferred way to tell stories.
Pá.ú.lú is influenced by artists such as Joseph Connell and Louise Nevelson, particularly Joseph Connell’s intricate boxes that tell stories and are composed by a multitude of elements. Pá.ú.lú is fascinated by the colour and composition present on his works.
In the foreseeable future, Pá.ú.lú plans to continue with his assemblage works whilst continuing to use upcycled materials giving them a second life. He also plans to continue exploring the history of places and things around him In order to bring this into his future art works.
