Clayton Camargo Junior was born in Curitiba, Brazil, and now lives in São Paulo, where he works as an illustrator for the newspaper Folha de São Paulo, Editora Abril and other clients, while he studies Fine Arts at the University of São Paulo. He began composing the Cristo Rei series during a Mixed Media Photography course at New York University,USA , and since then he has been working with photography (digital and analogical), digital illustration, typography and installation. He also plays bass in a Curitiba based experimental band, the Suite Minimal.



All pictures hold the Cristo Rei area of Curitiba where the artist lived since he was born, as the tematic playground for puppets, toys and lost objects - and also strategically localized buildings, as the Anaconda and the Evangelic Hospital -which play an important role in composing a personal memory of the neighborhood.

The Cristo Rei Series is a collection of 20 works of non-digital fotomontage produced by Clayton Camargo Junior between 1997 and 1999. They are all composed negative color films mounted on 35mm and enlarged manually. Each work belongs to an edition of 4 limited prints, and some of them belong to galleries or particulars.

The works shown here were exbited in an individual exibition at Brazil-U.S.A. Cultural Center (Curitiba, 1999) and will be at the Museum of Sound and Image of São Paulo (MIS). Some of the works also will be exibited at this year's edition of the Crakow International Print Triennial, in Polland.
