Coleção Particular

A rare chance to view a private collection

This is no ordinary gallery: it's the private passion and the personal collection of São Paulo art collector, Oswaldo Costa. Built up over forty years, the collection is a rarity in the world of private art hoards in that it's open to anyone who calls – and it's the owner, Costa himself, who welcomes you inside.

A capsule selection of some of the most important contemporary Brazilian artists of the last half century, there are pieces by artists like Geraldo de Barros, Cássio Michalany, Cildo Meireles and Leonilson. One artwork by the latter was made on Banana Republic wrapping paper after a shopping trip in New York. Another, by Leda Catunda, is made from the jigsaws the artist was obsessed with at the time. Look out, too, for paitnings and edgy, warped plastic sculptures by the paulistano artist Sergio Romagnolo.
