Lindote worked as a cartoonist, publishing daily in newspapers in southern Brazil. At the same time, he participated in collective exhibitions and contests, until definitively becoming established in the visual arts circuit.
His artistic career and research began in the late 1970s, working mostly with installations and interventions. Influenced by the experimental nature and research that pervaded Brazilian conceptual art in the 1960s and 1970s, throughout his career he also explored performance, painting, photography, video, drawing and sculpture for institutional and urban spaces.
His standout exhibitions include 1971 - A cisão da superfície ( 1971 - the split of the surface), at the Banco do Brasil Cultural Center of Rio de Janeiro (CCBB/RJ), in 2012; Desenhos Antelo (Antelo Drawings) at the Nara Roesler Gallery, São Paulo, in 2008; 3D3M, at the Centro Universitário Maria Antônia, São Paulo, in 2008; Experiências com o Corpo (Experiences with the Body), at Tomie Ohtake Institute, São Paulo, in 2002; Teatro Privado (Private Theater) at the Modern Art Museum of Rio de Janeiro (MAM/RJ), in 1999 and Olho de Mosca (Fly’s Eye) held at Santa Catarina Museum of Art (MASC), Santa Catarina, in 1999.
