Daniel Senise

Daniel Senise is a renowned Brazilian artist born in 1955 in the city of Rio de Janeiro. From a young age, he showed great interest in art and culture, which led him to study architecture at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. However, after a few years, he decided to drop out and focus on his true passion: painting.

In 1981, Senise held his first individual exhibition at the Paulo Klabin Gallery in Rio de Janeiro, where he presented a series of abstract works that caught the attention of critics and the public. From that moment on, his artistic career began to take off and in a short time he became one of the most important artists on the Brazilian art scene.

In his early years as an artist, Senise focused on geometric abstraction and the use of unconventional materials, such as wood and iron. However, in the mid-1980s, his work began to take a different turn, moving away from abstraction and toward figuration.

It was around this time that Senise began to use images of Brazilian popular culture in his works, such as favelas, urban landscapes, and carnival characters. These images, which are part of the daily life in Brazil, became central elements of his work and allowed him to explore themes such as cultural identity, memory and history.

Throughout his career, Senise has participated in numerous individual and group exhibitions in Brazil and abroad, and has received various awards and recognitions for his work. His works are part of important public and private collections around the world, such as the Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid.

Today, Daniel Senise continues to work and create works of art that explore the complexities of Brazilian culture and have managed to capture the attention and interest of the entire world.
