Antonio Henrique Amaral Biography

Antonio Henrique Amaral is a key figure in Brazilian and Latin American art. Born in 1935, he developed his signature fantastical style during the second half of the 20th century, coming of age under the rule of the military dictatorship installed in Brazil in 1964. His visceral and allegorical works deal with political violence, existential discontent and erotic desire through an experimental approach that challenges authoritarianism.

Amaral strove to construct an oeuvre that would defy univocal interpretations. His more than six decades of production resulted in a multifaceted path that has been the subject of recent revisions by essays and monographic exhibitions that situate the artist beyond the works of his iconic and emblematic Bananas series, executed between 1968 and 1975.
