Amilcar de Castro
Spacial Relief V1, 1960, by Hélio Oiticica
Amílcar de Castro, born 1920, was a Brazilian artist, sculptor and graphic designer. Starting his career as a graphic designer, he revolutioned the design of Brazilian newspapers in the 1950s, but from the 1960s he focused on sculpture and was one of the leading figures of the Brazilian neo-constructivist movement. Amilcar de Castro is particularly famous for large, bold simple iron forms nearly always characterised by a design based on "one cut, one fold."
