AboutV22 ASHWINSTREET is pleased to present 'Promised Lands' a solo show by Brazilian artist f. marquespenteado. Working between London and São Paulo, Penteado has worked in fine art fashion and community based projects. Graduating from Goldsmiths in 2002 he was included in the much acclaimed 'boys who sew' exhibition organised by the Crafts Council in 2004.
f. marquespenteado's stitched works address the role of masculine identity through a medium which is traditionally associated with female practioners - his aim being to appropriate this medium in terms of projected masculinity. 'Promised Lands' embodies four series, focusing on intertwining terrains; the geographical, political and personal, all of which are caught up in the development and performance of identity within cultural history and f. marquespenteado's own personal history.
