A decoder of urban spaces, João Vasco Paiva (b. 1979, Portugal) is a Hong Kong based artist who observes the complex and predominantly chaotic characteristics of metropolises. The sounds and systems of bustling streets, rushing metros and densely constructed spaces are the core subjects of Paiva’s work, which he systematically documents, analyses, abstracts and reduces to create a codified interpretation that is simultaneously an artwork. At the heart of Paiva’s practice is an interest in finding an order and inner logic to urbanity’s intrinsic complexity.
