Alexandre Pinhel


Engineer and neo-expressionist Plastic Artist

Alexandre Pinhel (Instagram @alexandre.pinhel) is an engineer and neo-expressionist plastic artist. He seeks to create aesthetics from discarded materials and solid waste that are transformed from the use of hot air or fire and then joined by chemical, mechanical, or thermal methods. Packaging, bottles and plastic bags, broken pieces of glass, mirrors and ceramics, furniture parts, woods, leaves, stones, metal pieces in general, are examples of the type of material used. The transformation must ensure that the processed material is not identified by the observer, who should be surprised to be informed about the secret. An important aspect of the work is in the chosen name that must cause curiosity and suggest a story that will be imagined from the appreciation of the object. He participated in the following exhibitions (all of them at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil):
