Falves Silva [Cacimba, Brazil, 1943] is one of the precursor artists of the Poema/Processo movement, alongside names like Moacyr Cirne, Wlademir Dias Pino, Álvaro de Sá and Neide Sá, participating in its inaugural manifesto in 1967. In 1981, the artist participates in the XVI São Paulo Biennial, curated by Walter Zanini. On the 80’s, he’s associated with the international network of Postal Art, maintaining an intense and fruitful dialogue with artists of different generations and nationalities, among them Jota Medeiros, Ivald Granato, Leonhard Frank Duch, Paulo Bruscky, Hudinilson Jr , Clemente Padín, Edgardo Antonio Vigo, Ulises Carrión and Horacio Zabala. His work was exhibited at the International mail art exhibition, Tokyo, Japan, in 1984, and at the II Bienal de Arte Correio, Spain, in 1999. More recently, the artist had his solo exhibition “Círculo do Tempo”, a retrospective of his career, presented at the Centro Cultural São Paulo. The production of Falves Silva can be thought of as a convergence of two of the main axes of Brazilian art: concrete movements and conceptual art. The artist dialogues with literature, cinema and comics; manipulating communicative structures and images from the history of art and mass communication, Falves Silva creates his work by diversifying the approach and treatment of the materials he chose.
