Denilson Baniwa

Denilson Baniwa is 36 years old and was born in Mariuá, on the Black River (Rio Negro), Amazonas State. His path as an artist began with cultural influences drawn from his own people in childhood. In his youth, this artist began his trajectory in the struggle for the rights of indigenous peoples. He also navigated the non-indigenous universe, learning to grasp additional references to further strengthen his art scene of resistance. Denilson Baniwa is an anthrophagous artist who appropriates Western languages in order to decolonize them in his work. He has consolidated himself as a reference in his contemporary trajectory, breaking paradigms and opening paths for prominence for indigenous people in Brazil.
