Lapo — In Paris
´In Paris`is a series of 25 drawings. Lapo tells several little stories of typical characteristics of Paris and its inhabitants observed and experienced by a new visitor in town, perhaps not so glaringly obvious for those who live there.
Lapo is a contemporary storyteller. Focusing on characters and characterization, the multi-disciplinary artist uses drawing, painting and animation to interpret experiences and the sociology of culture concerning the ways of thinking, the ways of acting and the material objects that together shape people’s way of life. Born in 1981 in Rio de Janeiro to Portuguese parents and in 2001 soon after finishing school at The British School of Rio de Janeiro, the artist moved to the UK to study and work. In 2007 graduating from a Masters in Communication Design at Central Saint Martins in London. Lapo currently lives and works in Lisbon.
