Biography – Max Chrisostomo Coelho

Born in Rio, Brasil, in 1969, he arrived in France in 1988. After working as a professional musician until 2002, he became a crane driver to enjoy the skies and work with precision. After checking himself in for a bit of a vacation in the psychiatric hospital where he found mediocre results with the chemical treatments they had to offer, he sought alternative methods for greater health through sculpture. Using primarily raw iron and recycled materials, he works with the intention of conceiving objects with a "pense-bête" approach to different forms and subjects - that is, a way reminding himself, in a humourous way, his hopes and fears. His pieces have experienced an evolution since encountering Janine Benyus working in biomimicry who coined the phrase, `structure is meaning`. Applying this idea, he tries to create sculptures that convey a certain phenomenon in the society we live.
