Guido Drummond
Guido Drummond (1962), artist by vocation and entrepreneur by nature, has a vast and intense artistic career that started with event management in Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil, where he lived in the 1980’s, and where he designed and implemented a series of art projects and workshops for local communities.
Art applied to event management gained new forms and proportions in 1995 when the artist moved to Portugal and started his own business in both countries. Over the 17 years of art at the service of entertainment, a series of individual and corporate events, designed and produced from scratch in terms of … literally everything (original and adapted texts, settings, props and costumes, briefings and press releases), were developed for clients such as town authorities, shopping centers, public and private companies, banks and advertising agencies.
At the same time Guido Drummond experimented with other forms of creative expression: photography, screen printing, fashion design, and amateur radio, theater and film. But it was perhaps face and bodypainting that made him most widely renowned thanks to Roberto Machado’s photo essay shot in the Pantanal, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil, to the animated embodiments of Luiz Xavier Lima’s paintings at his Campo Grande vernissage, and to Carlsberg’s publicity campaign for UEFA Euro 2004.
Finally, in 2010, interior (re)design, a hobby cherished in private, materialized into an upcycling project ‘Lord Trash - Refreshing ... Things and Places’, and a homonym exhibition in Lisbon gallery/shop Fabrico Infinito. The upcycler’s première was also filmed for the Globo TV Internacional programme ‘Here We Are’.
Since then his work has been positively reviewed by a series of specialist decoration, design and architecture magazines, such as Casa Cláudia, Caras Decoração, Lux and TV Mais in Portugal, and Campo Grande Notícias and Diário Digital in Brazil.
The artist also participated in a number of upcycling projects, and the second exhibition of his works was held in 2011, in BCT Design Store in Lisbon, making him one of its resident artists.
Guido Drummond continued to work in the space of Brazilian and Portuguese Lusophonia, listening to the memories of objects and spaces that have become obsolete by the passage of time, technological change and social modification, and giving them new life opportunities through a process of aesthetic and functional enhancement. And in 2012, he eventually established a partner society, BCT Design Store e Decoração – Brazil/Portugal, and filmed four short do-it-yourself programmes entitled ‘Here We Are – Section: Tip of the Week’, produced by TV Globo Internacional.
In December 2013, he founded dk. upcycling art – Sustainable Design and Redesign with the Brazilian artist Rose Kanamura. This first Brazilian upcycling art studio took part, as one of the official suppliers, at the Exhibition of Architecture, Design and Decoration ‘Live More For Less 2013’, held in Campo Grande, MS, Brazil. Its work was praised for the implied principles of sustainability and the creative blend of handmade mastery and conceptual eclecticism. The two artists also gave interviews to TV (Educativa) Brasil Pantanal and TV Globo Internacional, stressing out the core of dk. upcycling art’s work: application of creativity at the intersection of the aesthetically desirable, technically feasible and economically viable.
Finally, in 2014, Guido Drummond attended the 1st Forum of Brazilian Furniture Design, an online meeting specifically dedicated to design art.
His current projects continue to fulfill the same main objective: to work towards greater openness to difference and innovation, and towards better awareness and embodiment of human and aesthetic values, inherent to the construction of holistic relationships between people, objects and places.
