    Annotations

    Brazilian artist Hermelindo Fiaminghi (1922–2004) conciliated a successful dual career in graphic design and fine arts. He embraced geometric abstraction early in his career, joining the Concrete movement in São Paulo by 1955. Fiaminghi was the recipient of a great number of awards and a participant of many group and solo exhibitions, as well as national salons and São Paulo biennials.
