Ding Musa studied music and geography at the University of São Paulo and graduated in photography at Senac. Although centered in photography, his work extends to other mediums such as video, drawing and installation. As of 2002, he began showing at both national and international exhibitions. Participated in several artist residencies, such as tactileBOSCH (Cardiff, Wales) in 2004, Carpe Diem Arte e Pesquisa (Lisbon, Portugal) in 2012 and C.A.J. Artist In Residence Program (Tokyo, Japan) in 2015. He taught history of photography courses at Senac and Sesc Santana, in 2009 and 2010, respectively. He has also worked as director of photography for movies, short films, series and documentaries, including “Campo da Paz” (Field of Peace) – a feature film set in Palestine.

Musa’s work is in various museums in Brazil and several collections abroad, among them the Museu de Arte Moderna in Salvador, in São Paulo, in Rio de Janeiro and in Fortaleza (Centro Dragão do Mar), the Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Goiás, the Museu de Arte Contemporânea do Paraná, the Museu do Estado do Pará, the Salão de Arte de Ribeirão Preto and the Centro Cultural São Paulo. Recently, two museums, the Museu de Arte Contemporânea da Universidade de São Paulo and the Museu de Arte do Rio Grande do Sul, acquired series of artworks by the artist. Galeria Raquel Arnaud represents the artist since 2014, the same year when the solo exhibition Equações was presented at the gallery.
