Sao Paulo adds another art gallery to it’s collection this Thursday with the inauguration of the Luis Maluf Art Gallery, in the Jardims region of the city, just off Rua Oscar Freire. The opening exhibition is entitled “Fragmento Urbano” which doesn’t need much translation, and it is a collective of three artists: Cranio, André Berardo and Francisco Rosa.
The latter two names are not familiar to me, but the first is definitely one of the biggest names on the scene in Sao Paulo, and abroad. Cranio’s blue native Indian characters can be seen all over Sao Paulo, as well as most major cities in Europe. I saw them in London a couple of months ago, and he seems to have had a busy year. So this is an excellent chance to see some of his work in a gallery setting back in his hometown.
The gallery also hosts the Inner multi.store where customized products produced by selected artists will be on display, and for sale. The current artists involved are Shine, Revolue, Gen Duarte, Russ, Rafael Sanches and Marcelo Pasqua.
WHERE: Luis Maluf Art Gallery, Rua Peixoto Gomide, 1887, Sao Paulo, SP. Near the corner of Oscar Freire where the All Black Irish pub is.
WHEN: Opening – November 27th from 17H.
