About

Alexandre Frangioni was born in São Paulo, Brazil, in 1967, a self-taught contemporary artist.

Frangioni addresses the relationship between memory, time, money, and the importance of the human being while analyzing the social, political, and economic values existing in contemporary societies.

The Exodus series depicts artworks exploring the monetary values through their meanings of accumulation and transformation, revealing the impacts caused by society over time.

The use of 3D printed symbols, such as piggy banks and charging bulls, proposes new ways of perception regarding financial stability and the possible risks caused by the capitalist culture. All compositions include 3D printed symbols, permitting the viewer to observe a three-dimensional aesthetic new form of art while carrying real currency to provide direct meaning and character of their own.

The artist continuously explores the interrelation between historical and present economic values from different countries, including Brazil, his land of origin.

The challenge of translating his ideas into pieces of art led the artist to extensive research of new materials, the case of the Exodus, Safe, QR Code, Emergency, and Made in China series.

The importance of his artworks goes beyond a simple proposal of three-dimensional objects.

His conceptual explorations lead the art enthusiasts and collectors to a vivid past or present society through attractive pieces with a unique artistic language, admirable in a self-taught artist.
