The Couto Bros. — Painters

Chris and Alexandre Couto are two brothers often labeled as ‘art revolutionaries’.

Their exploration takes place not only on canvas but through fashion, installations and sculptures. The brothers’ creativity is influenced by five continents. Beyond having extensive travels in Europe and Africa, the brothers were raised in Brazil and had periods of living in both China and India.

Their diverse cultural inspiration translates directly into their work. Despite having many shared experiences, they are in fact very opposite people. Their differences fuel an artistic union that allows them to complement each other to the fullest. Their creations are a collaboration as they paint simultaneously and interactively together illustrating the balance between the beautiful and the violent.
