By creating a minimalist vocabulary of abstract forms whose meaning, even when displaced and reduced, evokes a familiar figuration, Zé Tepedino creates a dialogue between references from the past without failing to capture the fleetingness of the now.
Expressing hymself between the biography and grammar of materials and a poetic rearrangement of the world around us, his work deploys in actions, assemblages, installations and expanded paintings.
