Biological Interior Design – meet Ernest Neto


If you want to “funkify” your home, considering bringing in Ernest Neto. Granted you will need a home the size of a castle to fit these interior design art pieces into it, but if you could, you would have a home which would be the talk of the town.

Ernesto Neto is considered one of the absolute leaders of brazil’s contemporary art scene. His inspiration comes partly from brazilian neo-concretism. at the end of the 1950s and beginning of the 60s the movement’s best-known proponents, lygia clarc and hélio oiticica,rejected modernism’s ideas of autonomous geometric abstraction. instead, they wanted to equate art with living organisms in a kind of organic architecture, and invite the viewer to be an active participant.

Here is some of his work.
