Cleverson Oliveira draws on multidisciplinary fields of visual language to explore the limits of the image, varying from the experience of cinema to drawing. Oliveira’s latest series of works are drawings made on paper and canvas. Using simple materials such as graphite powder, pencil and permanent marker, the artist creates a very intricate process of image making.


Demystifying the apparent natural condition of landscape, the works construct an imaginary space where the artifice of representation becomes the visual field after a complete disfiguration of representation. The landscapes seem to be set before us as an inevitability of nature. Built for centuries as the equivalent of nature, landscapes take on the most perfect representation of the world.


Oliveira has participated in various art exhibitions including venues in New York, Curitiba, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Seoul, and Doha. In 1996 he studied Art History at New York University, in New York, where he lived from 1996 to 2008.
