Grandma Nena

On April 16 at the Gallery A7MA, in Sāo Paulo, Brazil, a very special exhibit had its grand opening. The artist is one of the owner's grandmother, Mrs Nena Madalena Naif was born in 1948 into a modest family in Sāo Jose dos Campos, Brazil. She never ha a chance to get education and it was only after loosing her ability to talk after two strokes in 2008 that she started painting. With the incentive of her grandson, artist Enivo, she found a new way of communication and an amazing artist was born. Her art can be found among collectors in Italy, Germany, the United States and Brazil.

For sure this is a inspirational story that shows how art can change and enhance someones life. We can all find our voices through art!!!!!
