René is a Brazilian and Portuguese visual artist, and considers himself as a contemporary humanist. His research is about the human animal as a being, its society and its the shallow self-consciousness. He is concerned about humankind's lack of understanding of its role in world as the dominant species, frequently overvaluing unimportant aspects to the detriment of the well-being of humanity and the planet. His artwork presents a dense narrative, full of ordinary archetypes that express his nonconformity and, at the same time, remind the public the feeling of a familiar and disturbing place.
