Since 2016, Brazilian artist Luiz Zerbini has composed an extraordinary plant repertoire: from leaves, flowers and branches, found in town or in the heart of nature, he has created more than 300 unique monotypes and etchings got by a non-reproducible process. For the first time the Fondation Cartier brings together this exceptional series, whose some works were presented in the exhibition Trees (2019), in a large format, similar to the book of Ceare Leonardi et Franca Stagi, L’Architecture des arbres, published in 2019. This exceptional plant repertoire is a reference for all nature lovers and fans of Luiz Zerbini’s work. 

Born in São Paulo in 1959, Luiz Zerbini studied painting very early on, then photography and watercolour. In 1978, he entered the Fine Arts School of the Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado (FAAP) in São Paolo. Today, he sculpts, draws, takes photographs, makes videos and paints canvases of impressive dimensions, where urban landscapes, Brazilian culture and the lush nature of the tropical flora unfold in a rich palette of colors. Luiz Zerbini has exhibited all over the world and has participated in many biennials. He is one of the artists presented in the exhibitions Southern Geometries, from Mexico to Patagonia and Trees, organized by the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in 2018 and 2019.
