Lita Barrie reviews Oswaldo Vigas: Antologica 1943-2013 at the Museu de Arte Contemporanea da Universidade de Sao Paulo, on view through July 3, 2016.

Barrie observes: "[Vigas'] characteristic mix of figuration and abstraction shows the clear influence of cubism, expressionism and constructivism, yet he always retained a distinctive flair for using fragments almost like fractals – which sets his work apart from his contemporaries. This use of fragments is also the crucial device of Vigas’ oeuvre, that allows him to re-invent recurring themes throughout his long artistic career. Shapes are sometimes fragmented into geometric shapes and his images are often made of recomposed fragments."
