Sao Paulo, Brasil
Yuri Tuma was born in 1983 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and lives and works in Miami. He has had four solo exhibitions with Butter Gallery (2008 - 2013) and has participated in group shows and art fairs in New York and Shanghai. Tuma's main practice is photography, but has also collaborated in video, sculpture, fashion and installation art.
Tuma transforms his photographs into formulaic patterns creating optical art pieces unusual to the field of photography. Usually driven by architecture and urbanism, Tuma also finds inspiration in nature and geometry. His most recent exhibits, Sym City and Headlights, explore the marriage between photography and math in order to achieve a 3-D illusion on a 2-D plane.
