Brad Howe began his career in Brazil after studying history at the University of São Paulo. In his art he seeks to build on the tradition of geometric abstraction and to sustain that tradition as a living, viable discourse. His wall reliefs, mobiles, freestanding sculptures, and pieces of furniture combine the dynamic planar relationships and solid coloration associated with classic modernism. Their playful exuberance, however, owes more to the artistic climates of twenty-first century Los Angeles and São Paulo. Howe has exhibited in over sixteen countries worldwide, and his works have been placed in collections throughout thirty-two countries.
