Intro
Célio Braga transforms personal and fragile materials into pieces that together deliver a landscape over our transient bodies and the passing of time, a landscape of love and sorrow.

Artist list

Célio Braga
A dialogue between Braga's artistic practice and contemporary jewelry has always been present, a body-related art-form where both the physical properties of the materials and the techniques employed, shape embodied, intimate and personal meanings.
The pieces' crafted forms come through in a process of transformation, transgression and care. The inscription of hours, days and years in our lives, the essential aspect in Célio Braga´s work, is done through techniques that demand time, concentration, repetition, constantly adding meaning to the material, to the work.

Célio Braga is an artist living and working both in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and São Paulo, Brazil. He graduated from Gerrit Rietveld, 2000 and before that he studied during August - October 2018 at The Boston Museum School of Fine Arts, USA, he is an artist in Residence at Iaspis studios in Stockholm.

This exhibition is his second at Platina in Stockholm.
