Athos Bulcão is first and foremost a painter. Painting was a field he settled on when beginning his art career in the 1940s. While working as a painter, he practiced drawing and produced series of engravings. A restless artist, he was soon experimenting with photomontage, polychrome reliefs, his series Masks, and the small objects of the series Creatures. Pieces that constitute his atelier artwork, the result of 70 years of research, studies and artistic production. All the items are part of the Athos Bulcão Foundation Collection.
