Kenneth Velludo is an architect who works with creating mosaics for floors or facades. This shows it brings abstract works inspired by modernist artists that function as frames.
The young Felipe Guimarães works with fabrics and with a painting, for unsuspecting, may seem to have been done with brush and oil paint. In fact, the artist who drink at the fountain of abstract expressionism, uses only spray paint, taking an urban twist to the screens.
IDA Feldman completes the team of PORTFOLIO #4. The artist, that makes use of media such as video and social networks, making digital collages, brings to the show a series of tiles with sentences full of philosophy and humor.
A democratic Gallery
Edward Ball explains that the idea of MORE ART GALLERY has always been to be a more democratic space. The Gallery shares space with another gallery, which belongs also the Ball, Brazilian engraving. Until your front already is an invitation for the public: two panels (one of Sandra Majumder and Augusto Sampaio) divide the attention of the eyes and join a friendly and welcoming environment, similar to a square.
Also, its owners have an educational proposal with monitoring from the exhibitions for schools and the general public. The Gallery also wants to show the public that art can be, activate, a profitable investment option and that, not always, an object of art has exorbitant prices. In addition to their jobs today 15 artists represented, the Gallery is also developing with some of the names who you're working with a product line signed in limited print runs, They include items such as light fixtures, sculptures and boxes.
The artists represented are almost all Brazilians and residents of Sao Paulo – the exception is a Polish who lives in Sao Paulo for almost two decades and a brazilian who is also Hu a few years. The clipping of the Gallery is for artists living and working in contemporary art.
