He is well known by his experimental music project funded em 1999 called Objeto Amarelo that explores the various layers of sound either in the studio and in the stage and was one of the first groups to be presented in art galleries in Brazil, he has a few albums that dialogue with the live performance without reproducing it , they collaborate with many important names of Brazilian music. As Objeto Amarelo, Carlos Issa also developed a very powerful visual language used in the covers and posters of the band.

His practice also operates within a broader field; he has organized and participated in independent exhibitions applying DIY exhibition display methods which anticipated, at the end of the 1990’s, the multiplicity of means  and vehicles for the circulation of art, both inside and outside of the market. He has worked as a curator of experimental music events and art collectives such as “Supercollina”, at Galeria Logo, and “Conversão”, at Galeria Sé, both in São Paulo, Brazil. He has participated in group exhibitions both in Brazil and abroad, such as “Tropical Funk” at Whitechapel Gallery in London and “Dobra”, at Ferme du Buisson, in Paris. He had a solo exhibition that was held in 2017 at NADA. Since 2018 he has being represented by Sé and had his first solo show fully dedicated to his contemporary visual practice.
