Recognized both for his personal work as well as for his involvement in experimental artist groups like the Movimento de Arte Pornô, Hudinilson Jr. (1957-2013) is considered one of the most important Brazilian artists of his generation. Hudinilson Jr. was a leading member of the Movimento de Arte Pornô, having participated  in the very first collective publication, the zine Gang 1 (1980) and every subsequent publication thereafter. He was one of the signatories of the manifesto and a piece of his was also used for the cover of Eduardo Kac’s first poetry book, which is now in the collection of the Museum of Modern of Art (New York). His medium of choice was xerography. Often titled  “Exercise in seeing myself ”,  Hudinilson Jr. created nearly abstract multi-pieced xeroxed compositions, magnifications and reductions of his own body. These were often sent out as mail art.
