Humanity and art cannot function without each other. We have a burning desire to create quality cultural actions. Popular art is defined as the representative expression of a country's culture. In Brazil we find several popular artists spread across all regions of the country. The works of the segment are of very high aesthetic and artistic recognition. Artists are inspired by their regionality, beliefs, legends and customs typical of their culture.
Popular culture is the main root of this art. Autodidact (self taught), the popular artist dedicates his free time, your time off from work to create your art. If you succeed, he ends up becoming a professional and living off his art. Its role is fundamental for the intellectual development, opinion formation, social inclusion, education and finally, it's the most incredible way to make people see the world more civilized.
“Celebrating the end of the year 2022 with one collective exhibition of the best active artists of our popular art, we have multifaceted artistic works that represent the varied regional customs of Brazil”, says Jacques Ardies.
