Simone Mattar


simone

Simone Mattar graduated in Graphic & Industrial Design from the Visual Arts College at FAAP in 1984. She did Architecture at Mackenzie University, and specialized in Gastronomy from Anhembi-Morumbi University. In 1985-6, she worked with designers Andrea Rauch and Stefano Rovai at the Graphitti Studio in Florence, Italy. In 1990, she started her own studio in São Paulo, where she worked for 20 years as a food branding consultant, creating projects for more than 100 restaurants and catering firms. She has been doing her own research and art projects since 2013. She has created the concept of “gastroperformance”, a term that encompasses new forms of expression by articulating several different art forms −like theatre, music, sculpture and painting− around gastronomy and the act of eating.
