Carlos Noronha Feio’s diverse practice includes actions, performance, video, drawing, painting, photography, rug works and installation. He consumes, manipulates, juxtaposes and performs or re-sites media as research into cultural, local and global identity.

He frequently adopts culturally significant images, locations and symbols as a form of creative interference with meaning, and demonstrates the almost arbitrary nature in which cultural significance is adopted or interpreted. The artist’s practice is focused on transcending the limitations of any single culture through the introduction and inclusion of multiple cross-cultural visual vocabularies.

Carlos Noronha Feio also works as curator, his project ‘Wild Flowers (wildness is contextual!)’ has been presented in three volumes at narrative projects gallery in London (2017), Iragui gallery in Moscow (2018), Art-O-Rama (Marseille, 2018).
