Raimundo

← Back to the Portfolio

Raimundo Batista is an Alagoan from the city of Lagoa da Canoa. Because of economical reasons, he moved to São Paulo, where he became a shoe-repairer. By using shoe-sole leftovers, he began to make dolls that he sold on the street. He then went back to Alagoas, in order to dedicate entirely to his artistic career, in which the most significant works are sculptures on wood, forming structures that remind us of his life in São Paulo as a shantytown dweller: little superimposed houses, clothes hung up outside the windows, colorful tightly packed alleys, old cars.

Size: 60 x 40 x 20 cm.

Price: R$ 3,200.00.
