Pedro Fausto, born in 1955, was greatly influenced by the lively cultural scene of the 1970s. During this time, art aimed to grow and adapt in response to the challenges of the previous decade. The 1970s saw the rise of Conceptualism, a movement born from Minimalism. Alongside this, Process art emerged, blending Conceptualism with introspective ideas about art. Land Art, focusing on outdoor installations and earth carving, reflected the beginnings of environmentalism. In Germany, artists like Gerhard Richter and Anselm Kiefer revived expressive figure painting. Influential figures from the 1960s, such as Andy Warhol, continued to shape the art world by exploring film and publishing. Street art, born from graffiti and embraced by artists like Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, gained prominence, blurring the lines between galleries and city walls, becoming a unique global form of artistic expression.
