He received a BA in Sculpture from the FBAUL (2012) and a Diploma (MA Equivalent) in Sculpture from the ADBK München (2016), where he studied with Hermann Pitz, Ceal Floyer, Andrea Fraser and Tyler Coburn. He participated in the Independent Study Programme at Maumaus - Escola de Artes Visuais in Lisbon (2016).
His practice relies on the use of technologies to imitate, re-articulate or re-imagine unchallenged structures and systems in western society. He works on long-term projects that are driven by partially fictive scenarios. These fictive scenarios are often produced from scientific findings and historical documents referring to past, present or future socio-political circumstances, materialising itself as installations, sculptural and video work.
Da Cruz is assistant professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich since 2018.
