A Social Revolution

Abstract Expressionism, which in the 50s revolutionized painting and veered art towards a new direction of experimentation and individual freedom, now strikes again with new impact at the Tampa Museum of Art in Florida, United States. Under the title of Abstract Expressionism: A Social Revolution, a selection of 25 paintings loaned by the famous art [...]

Antunes at Venice’s Biennal 2019

Every two years, art shakes up the world with La Biennale Di Venezia . In this year’s international art event, the 58th version, Portugal has brought one of its most representative artists Leonor Antunes with an ambitious project that connects contemporary values to both historical and 20th century Italian architecture and design.

Impermanent Life

From afar, it looks like an abstract painting made up of dots, of cherry blossoms and strange terrains that seem to flow and float. It traps your attention, your interest, your curiosity. As you approach, you start to see that the image is not static, that every single dot moves in unison, coordinated with the [...]

Surrounded Islands

Forgotten and neglected, the door was always chain-locked. From afar, one could see the statue of [...]

Picasso and Nature
