James Kudo was born in Pereira Barreto, Sao Paulo, Brazil. In the early 90s a man-made lake built by the local power plant flooded parts of the city. Kudo’s paintings are informed by memories of his hometown turned Nouveau Atlantis, intermingling with recollections of other regional changes and processes of urbanization. Free-floating fragments of houses, planes of color and abstracted natural elements convene in striking combinations in Kudo’s re-imagined landscapes. (src. Juxtapoz)
