About the artist

As a self-taught designer, João Paulo Raimundo has always been very observant. When he first encountered the papier-mâché technique, he immediately fell in love with its transformative power. A simple scrap sheet of paper or cardboard, which had become garbage, could now have its function reverted and become wood again! Based on his personal and technical experiences, he has improved and refined an ancient technique, discovering that he could create sturdy pieces with refined finishes.

Using the papier-mâché dough made with recycled cardboard, he sculpts his pieces and, after drying, they receive a fine finish with a process of varying dyes – the result of his research with several raw materials – and the final polishing. His products are impressive and are very often mistaken for pieces of wood by those with less attentive eyes.

The first pieces he created were mandalas. Over time, he started to make wall sculptures, paintings, lamps and even furniture, such tables and benches. All of his work comes with a seal of sustainability for the reuse of cardboard. His artworks are creative, original and bring beauty into any environment.

Currently, his pieces can be seen at his two galleries, one in Campos do Jordão and the other in Santo Antônio do Pinhal, both in São Paulo. Every weekend, João Paulo Raimundo and his wife, Rafaela, are usually at the galleries, always welcoming to everyone who visits.

The Laços sculpture was the piece I chose to compose my space at @morarmaisrio.
The artist practices sustainability by creating decorative objects and transforming garbage into luxury.
