Ivan Serpa was a key figure within the Brazilian post-war constructivist avant-garde. He first began painting in the abstract geometric genre in 1947 when, together with fellow artists Almir Mavignier, Abraham Palatnik and the art critic Mario Pedrosa, he worked as an art therapy tutor in the Engenho de Dentro Psychiatric Hospital in Rio de Janeiro.  Astonished by the expressive power and 'authenticity' of the patients' artwork, this group of artists found new approaches for their own produ (showing 500 of 3228 characters).
