Recognized both for his personal work as well as for his involvement in experimental artist groups, 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). In the early 1980s, Hudinilson Jr. would organize the multitude of images he collected into seemingly biographical works consisting of double-sided grids on a single sheet of paper as well as unique collages on board.
