"Being the masterpiece of the Exhibit, the composition “Favela” shows the complexity of the series that appears, step by step, within the density of their composition elements. In it, we may see and feel the physical appearance with the real “favelas” (shanty town) of the cities and its formal likeness, colors and movements, as well as its temporal and spatial reorganization, unit of colors and reconstruction of the movements, derived from the sensitive reading of the artist.
It is not only a transposition, but the creation of a unique composition, characterized as abstract, where its elements of color, surface, materials, lines, volumes and mainly movement, are united, interact, converge and dialogue to build a unit of great power of expressive communication and sensible beauty.
I believe that this series provides us with great possibilities of reflection on the simplicity of the things, our capacity to explore, in a non-predatory manner, the nature or our constructive capacity, the infinite possibilities of use of the resources that are close to us, without the need to venture through prescriptions or formulas, that may command us to reflect on our environments, starting with our inside, which has already the possibility of creation and the power to interact creatively with the spaces around us, with our RESIDIR RESISTIR (Reside Resist) so necessary and urgent in the present times.
I’m quite happy to follow the formation and expressive development of Luciano Pinheiro, but I’m very glad for the opportunity to participate of his first exhibit, to be able to share his talent, simplicity and knowledge, being sure that a strong future, with the creation of new series and sensible works, with a deep dedication to Art".

According to a study published by the Latin American Faculty of Social Sciences, between 1980 and 2014, 967,851 people died from gunfire in the country. These are the announced deaths. The victims remain young, black, poor and from urban peripheries, with little access to education, the labor market and culture. Worse, lost lives are increasingly younger and blacker. Of those who die in Brazil by firearms, 70% are black (black and brown).
Between 2012 and 2017, 255,000 black deaths from murder were recorded; in proportion, blacks are 2.7 times more likely to be victims than whites. (according to the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics - IBGE)
Rio de Janeiro is the state with the highest absolute number of people killed in confrontation with the police (1,810 victims). It also has the second highest rate: 10.5 murders per 100 thousand inhabitants. more than twice the 800 victims killed by the terrorist organization ETA in Spain over four decades. Of 80% of those killed by police officers in RJ in the first half of 2019 were black and brown.
The city of Rio de Janeiro has 763 slums, which are home to 22% of the population of the city of Rio de Janeiro. According to the DATAFAVELA Institute, in Rio, 94% of the people who live in the communities are happy, optimistic and there is emotional involvement. The survey also points out that two-thirds would not leave the place where they live even if their income doubled. Leaving the favela is not the wish of 66% of those interviewed, and 94% consider themselves happy, one percentage point less than the national average.
It was from a favela that was born and raised in Complexo da Maré, Marielle Franco, councilor elected by the brutally murdered people, who spoke openly about race, violence and gender. He graduated in social sciences at PUC-Rio and completed his master's degree in public administration at Universidade Federal Fluminense (UFF), defending his dissertation with the title "UPP: reducing the favela to three letters". But, like the favela, its voice still resists and brings strength to the struggle of this population. Marielle said: “Favela is not a problem. Favela is a city. Favela is a solution”. The favela people resist.
