Fábio Baroli (Uberaba, 1981), a descendant of the genealogical branch started in Brazil by Almeida Júnior (1850-1899), produces artworks that express a worldview anchored in country living and the regional imaginary. Traditional genres – such as portraiture, landscape and still life – blend into everyday scenes from the artist’s life in paintings with sharp and striking gestures: works that reveal traces of editing (montages, collages and interventions) that are characteristic of digital software. Appropriation and reference to the photographic image are part of the artist's process. Fábio lives and works in São Paulo.
Winner of the Funarte de Arte Contemporânea (2011) and Marcantonio Vilaça (2013) awards, the work of Fábio Baroli is present in collections such as MAM Rio, Museu de Arte do Rio MAR and Museu Nacional de Brasília.
