Lives and works in Saquarema, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Mulambö's artistic practice is based on ‘refounding’ powers, through which he seeks to re-value the symbols of suburban existence in Rio de Janeiro. The artist explores everything from painting and the making of flags and objects, to the internet as a work platform. He makes art to affirm that there is no museum in the world like a grandmother's house. In 2019, he presented his works in two critically acclaimed solo shows, Tudo Nosso at Museu de Arte do Rio; and Prato de Pedreiro at Centro de Arte Hélio Oiticica. In 2021, he presented his first solo show at Portas Vilaseca Galeria, Mulambö all in gold. That same year, he was selected to exhibit for the first time abroad, at Das Schaufenster, Seattle, USA, where he presented the solo show Out of many, muchos más; and also at Haus der Kunst, Munich, Germany, in the group exhibition SWEAT.
