Augusto de Campos

Augusto de Campos (Sao Paulo, Brazil, 1931). Augusto De Campos and his brother Haroldo were pivotal in the creation of Brazilian concrete poetry in the 1950s. Between the 1970’s and 1980´s Campos pushed his experiments with poetry by utilizing new medias such as electric billboards, videotext, neon, holograms, computer graphics, and the use of sound and music. De Campos and his peers led the way for an entire generation of poets who wanted to shape, structure and re-invent words as a proper visual entity, going beyond their purely verbal concepts.
