Henrique de França (Brazil, 1982) is a São Paulo-based artists whose paintings and drawings call attention to issues of urban violence, as well as collective and individual memory. Henrique's monochromatic, largely black and white samples are extraordinarily sharp and detailed. For his series entitled "Suspended Void", the artist's perfectly rendered lines invoke scenes of poetic, impossible life. His work also expresses a yearning for a sensationalized childhood - or, a gratitude for escaping the same. Henrique had solo shows at the Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Campo Grande (2013); Museu de Arte de Goiânia (2012); Desenho Contado, Galeria Leme (2011).
