Terra Brasilis is the work-title of Alvaro's visual research in Visual Arts, as part of his Masters degree, in course since 2021.
Unflagging is an on-going series of hand-made posters that started during automne 2021, as result of visual explorations combining techniques and languages : print screen, spray paint and stamping.

In Spring 2022, Unflagging occupied the exhibition window at Visual arts school at UQAM (6th floor), as part of the research on visual presentation. In this installation, posters were glued upon foam-core plaques cutted in V, so each poster is placed in each external surface of the V form. This allowed to explore new expressive ways in space.

The first serie of 28 units was exhibited as part of a group show in CDEx-UQAM (Montreal, Canada) in December 2021, under the title 'Hors d'oeuvre - Parmi nous et tant d'autres  - 
Among us and so many others'. Photos by Patrick Lafontaine and from artist's archive.
