Dubai, UAE – September 24, 2019; Over the last few decades, Brazil has produced a number of innovative contemporary artists working across a number of mediums helping to bolster the country as an art and culture destination.

This September 23rd, Central Park Towers will host an opening reception of an exhibition featuring the works of 12 well-established Brazilian artists varying from realists with passion & energy to contemporary expressionists, all reflecting the abundance & exuberance of Brazil and its people.

The Latin American art scene has gained significant exposure during the last ten years particularly after the 2016 Olympic games hosted in Rio de Janeiro, giving these artists the recognition they deserve and allowing art enthusiasts in Dubai the opportunity to see some of the best contemporary artists of Brazil – a country rich in cultural history and full of inspiration.

The exhibition features some exceptional works by Bia Ferrari. Bia; an academic artist, having held several collective and solo exhibitions in Brazil will showcase her work in Dubai. A classical, her portrayal of imperial Brazil through its architecture, people, and the country’s very diverse nature captures the essence of imperial Brazil as it was using soft colours emphasizing the delicate features and details of the Brazilian empire soon after its discovery.
