Happy New Year!!!
Hard to believe 2017 is already here. A new year bringing hope , expectations and surprises. 2016 was a great year for Urban Walls Brazil. It was a year filled with projects and the chance to meet new and incredible art related people.
We hosted amazing Brazilian artists like Tereza Dequinta e Robezio Marqs from Acidum Project, Mag Magrela, Mateu Velasco and Mateus Bailon.
Our projects ranged from sponsoring Brazilian artists abroad (talking about you Erika Mizutami) to helping them on their struggle to get to Mural Festivals... long story, right Acidum Project??
We were honored and trilled to be part of the history making of Street Art in Annapolis. A town, yet, virgem to this kind of Urban Art that has so kindly open their arm to us and embraced our Annapolis Design District project in a wonderful way.
2016 was also a year with great Art Fairs. Unfortunately we were not able to make it to Art Basel Miami, but we followed all the excitement through the posts and comments from our art lover friends.
Our network was blessed with a number of fantastic art people and new partnership were formed. A lot to come in 2017!!!
Back in Brazil to celebrate the Holidays, we visited Mateu Velasco on Rio de Janeiro and met a new group of Brazilian artists (the cariocas)!! And I have to be thankful for their hospitality!!
In Sao Paulo we were received with so much love by some of our friends!!! Thank you Ciro for hosting the Barbecue. Thanks everyone that came!! I would have loved to have ALL my Brazilians there... To all the artists that were not invited you were not forgotten!! I really think and want to help and meet you all!!! But... it will take time to accomplish ALL that i want to do.
2017 is here and it will be a GREAT year!!!
Many projects are already on the way to become a reality!!!
Meanwhile I wish everyone a year filled with love, peace, health, success and ART!!! Hopefully we will have the chance to meet or work together this year!!
