“Abstract Concrete” is an homage to Oscar Niemeyer, one of the most important architects in the world, deceased in 2012. Formed only by curves and minimalist lines, almost abstract, the images are articulated by two references: the concretist movement in Brazilian art, contemporary of Brasilia’s construction, and the creative process of the architect, who used to synthesize his ideas with a few lines on a sheet of paper.
José Roberto Bassul was born in Rio and lives in Brasilia. His photography turns to architecture and urban environment as an attempt "to draw thoughts, project desires and built spaces for the imagination". He has received several awards and his works has often been exhibited in festivals, galleries and museums in solo and group shows in Brazil and abroad. He has published two photobooks. His works belong to important private and public collections such as those of National Museum of Republic (Brasilia), Art Museum of Rio, Museum of Modern Art (Rio) and Museum of Photography (Fortaleza)
