Thiago Rocha Pitta
 
Brazil-based artist Thiago Rocha Pitta's (born 1980 in Tiradentes Minas Gerais) temporal and sensitive body of work depicts interventions with the environment. Through watercolors, photographs, sculpture, and video, Rocha Pitta focuses on small yet emotive elements of the natural world that are simultaneously ominous and melancholy. Driven by a preoccupation with the passage of time, particularly in natural settings, Rocha Pitta often manipulates the pace of his work, confronting his viewer with quiet, curious introspection and an open-ended sense of longing.
Widely recognized as one of Brazil's leading contemporary artists, Thiago Rocha Pitta has held solo exhibitions internationally among others at Marianne Boesky Gallery, New York (2017); Galeria Millan, Sao Paolo (2014); Gluck50 Gallery, Milan (2013); Andersen Contemporary, Copenaghen (2012); Parque Lage, Rio de Janeiro (2010); and Meyer Riegger Galerie, Karlsruhe (2009). His work has been incorporated into public collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris; Hara Museum, Tokyo; the ThyssenKrupp, Vienna; and the Museu de Arte Moderna de Sao Paolo, Sao Paolo.
