COOL ART IN RIO

Here we are in Rio and we have already gone to a couple of museums. Yesterday we visited the CCBB - old headquarters of Banco de Brazil and next door an Art Centre of the Brazilian post. Both of these are totally free and we had a great time. 

 

At the exhibit of Jabim Nunes. We loved the colourful works, and also the story of his success: he was working away in relative obscurity and posted some of his works on social media. Then a gallery owner spotted him in 2015 and invitations to Paris, USA and Finland ensued! The rest is history...

This is from another floor. Lili wanted to take a selfie of this piece close by to see all the bits glued onto it. This exhibit was by Sandra Felzen and it was inspired by the Brazilian coastal ecosystems.
