ART AND DESIGN
Born in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Athos Bulcão (1918-2008) explored many techniques being a multiple artist. During a 70 year-long career he created paintings, drawings, engravings, sculptures and the monumental integration of art into architecture. In 1958, he moved to Brasilia where he lived until his death, in 2008. One of the most well known Brazilian artists in the 20th century, Athos found in the tilery his reatest artistic expression. He worked with various Brazilian architects, but his projects with Oscar Niemeyer and Lelé became a landmark of Brazilian architecture.
The Athos Bulcão Foundation was created in 1992 and works on promoting, documenting, preserving, researching and publicing the work of Athos Bulcão, further on commercializing multiple copies of his work. The institution also develops important projects on art education, youth mobilization and patrimonial education.
