The exhibition “NY-BR” has just inaugurated at the Brazilian Consulate’s lobby (225 East 41st Street) and will be on view until April 29th. The artist, Matheus Barros, explores the ties between Brazil and New York City through images that combine various elements and techniques: traditional painting, photography, digital composing and procedural fractal generation. By bringing to the canvas visual references and landmarcs from both places, the artist invites the public to engage in his own views and perceptions on the theme Brazil-New York. A special focus is given to places and buildings that are part of the history of the Consulate-General of Brazil in New York.
