WORK "HUMANAE" BY / ANGELICA DASS
Artist born in 1979, in Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil. She worked in fashion and now lives and works in Madrid, in Spain.
The project is based on a series of portraits whose background is dyed with the exact Pantone® tone extracted from a sample of 11x11 pixels of the portrayed´s face. The project’s objective is to record and catalog all possible human skin tones. “The inspiration for this project comes from my family roots, I am the granddaughter of a ‘black’ and a ‘native’ Brazilian and daughter of a ‘black’ father adopted by a ‘white’ family. So, I am a mixture of diverse pigments. »
