Iuri Kothe's Art Curriculum

A short biography

Born in the city of São Paulo, Brazil (1980), Iuri Kothe dedicates remarkable talent to the art of collage since 2003 – both analog, with pieces of magazine photographs, and digital, with pictures processed on Photoshop.
His images show good precision, aesthetic appeal and high suggestive impact and have attracted the attention of journalists, who see a peculiar form of communication; and other artists, stimulated to bring them to public exhibition.

Other Movements

Iuri Kothe began to study classic piano at the age of six and today starts experimental electronic production with samplers, synths and programs – a musical expression of the visual collages that he makes with paper and mouse. With Felipe Barbirato forms the duo Ghiroma, which explores textures and ambiences.
Iuri lived in Rostock [Germany], some Brazilian cities and is now established in Rio de Janeiro. He holds a degree in Electrical Engineering and a M.Sc. in Digital Audio Processing.
Iuri volunteered in 2005 at Espaço Logos Sagrado - Rio de Janeiro, teaching art to poor children in a slam; and was part of the production staff of Fashion Real show, at Parque Laje (RJ), in September 11th, 2004, with social causes.
