One of the main idealizers of the 1960s Brazilian political art movement, Pedro Escosteguy was multi-faceted artist. He began his career as a poet in the 1950s, participating in the Quixote Group. He then moved to Rio de Janeiro where he began working as a plastic artist with artists such as Antonio Dias, Antonio Manoel, Rubens Gerchman, Carlos Vergara, among others. He participated in historical exhibitions of political art in Brazil, such as the “Nova Objetividade Brasileira” (1967), “Opinião 65” and “Opinião 66”, of which he was one of the idealizers, as well as the exhibition “Nova Figuração – Anos 60” at the Galeria Jean Boghici in Rio de Janeiro. He also participated in the 8th and 9th Biennials of São Paulo. In the same period, he created the text and script for the emblematic film “Arte Pública” (1967) that presents the São Paulo Biennial and the avant-garde Brazilian artists of that period, such as Abraão Palatnik, Antonio Dias, Carlos Vergara, Glauco Rodrigues, Lygia Clark, Rubens Gerchman, including performances by Hélio Oiticica and Lygia Pape.
