VIA Arts Prize 2019

The VIA Arts Prize is the UK’s only Ibero-American themed visual arts competition, inviting artists to submit original works inspired by Latin American, Spanish and Portuguese arts and cultures.
The Prize (open entries from April to September 2019) culminates in a group exhibition of shortlisted works in the Embassy of Brazil’s impressive Sala Brasil Gallery, at central London.
Exhibition from 13th November to 18th December 2019.
Of course, in this competition, I will present an artistic theme from Brazil culture.
My artwork is a large canvas, painted in oil with fingers. Titled “Brasil Capoeira”, expresses the centenary martial arts through dancing, with inverted kicks, Ginga, acrobatic manoeuvers, and a lot of rhythmic Ladainha with Berimbau.
