Brazilian-American artist C.L. DeMedeiros works exclusively with found objects. A former monastic scholar, Mr. DeMedeiros’ work intermingles themes of religious authority, alternative sexuality, politics, subculture and popular culture, and their often fraught intersections. While largely self-taught and often associated with ‘Outsider Art,’ C.L. DeMedeiros’ insightful and sophisticated work has been acknowledged internationally. His work has been exhibited at the New York Public Library, The Art Students League of New York (where it garnered several awards), 80 Washington Square East Galleries, and numerous galleries in Central and South America. Recent notable exhibits include The Ties That Bind for Trinity School's 300th anniversary, Art and Activism at Bluffton University, Ohio, and Outsider Art Fair in New York City. For the Sing for Hope, Street Pianos Project, Mr. DeMedeiros created twenty pianos which were displayed throughout the five boroughs of New York City. Mr. DeMedeiros’ work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal. Upcoming exhibition: 5th Homosurrealism at Resistance Gallery in London.
