    Edival Ramosa was born in Brazil in 1940. Between the years 1964-74 he spent time with Arnaldo Pomodoro, Lucio Fontana and Enrico Baj in their Milan studios. During this time, he created art from plastic in the Polimero Arte laboratories, together with many other Italian and French artists, notably Baj and Man Ray. He later returned to Brazil and now works and lives in Sao Paolo as a painter.
