Part 1 - Exhibition: May 6 - July 7, 2019 | 11am - 7pm daily (except Sundays)
A collection of works on paper presented by three upcoming artists from the emerging art scene.
Samuel is presenting large works on paper, he is making us travel and experience a bit of his world, a world made of colors and situations, stories to tell and initiatives to take forward. Working mainly with watercolor Samuel is able to transfer his thoughts and his feelings on paper in a very intricate and busy small drawings. Doesn’t go very far Rodrigo Mabunda: recycling packaging material, mainly cardboard, he will draw with ball-pen on the back of it. Rodrigo is telling us stories of everyday life, of places crowed with people such markets, ceremonies or parties, you will find him wondering streets of Maputo for inspirations. Santos on the other side is trying to contain all the chaos surrounding the stories with geometrically cut colored cardboard giving it the chance to be.
