Tantão, musician, visual artist and performer, is an icon of Rio de Janeiro, he acts and operates in the subculture and underground scene of this big brazilian city. His art is influenced by his naval industrie experience, street art and his own interest in the history of modern and contemporary art. The frontiers between musical performance and his visual works become blurry, he says: «Art is everywhere where I am going.“
Tantão is coming to Berlin. Like Rio de Janeiro, Berlin has also a multicultural past and background, new and old are merging infinitely in a mix of different visions and ways of life.

For the opening of the exhibition Tantão will improvise a performance with the swedish sound artist Jonas Ohlsson.
