Paulo Nazareth was born in 1977 in Governador Valadares in Brazil. In his youth Paulo Nazareth initially had more of an interest in filmmaking. It was only later that he decided to become an artist and studied at the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais in Brazil. For the artist, work and personal life are inseparable: ‘Since I’m in this already, everything I will make will be art, even if I remove myself from the art circuit, from the art world, there’s no way out anymore’. He participated in the Venice Biennale in 2015 in the Latin American Pavilion.
His work was included in the exhibition 'Dancing with Myself' (2018) at Punta della Dogana.
