Paulo Wirz

About the artist:

Paulo Wirz was born in 1990 in São Paulo and lives in Switzerland since 2008. He graduated recently at the Zürcher Hochschule der Künste in fine arts and will start this year his master in Geneva. In his artistic practice he uses elements from his childhood together with the actual environment he live in and contemporary problematics from our society. Based on syncretistic clashes and contrasts as ancient and modern, hand-made and industrial, natural and unnatural, Paulo combines different traditions and religions to create his own personal mythology.
