André Filur is a multi-disciplinary artist who is always in quest of exploring new media and techniques – from illustration to graffiti and sculpture. Seeking to rescue his ancestry and to portray lived feelings, André Filur researches Brazilian popular art and its mysticisms, with an emphasis on São Francisco frowns, ex-votos, symbologies of African and indigenous origins with a contemporary look.
From these references, André Filur has a strong relationship with his dreams in which many of his works manifested themselves first. The image, title and choice of colors are already presented to him in this intimate relationship with the holistic universe, already anticipating the developments for projects and exhibitions.
In this relationship, André Filur's works are a new way of merging contemporary issues and materials with their own mythologies, re-signifying iconography and building new symbols, creating a new popular and sacred imagery.
