PORTUG´ART – The best of modern Portuguese Art in the heart of London

 

 

“At the time when the trend is becoming increasingly individualistic, where that same individuality leaves us with a huge emptiness and makes us want to go back to basics and find our own identity, I created this project and invited all Portuguese artists to share their culture, their ideas, their vision and their mission.”

The portuguese Artist and Founder of PortugArt, Mara Alves, supported by the Portuguese Embassy in London and several artistic entities in London, Portugal and Brazil, created this project to give the opportunity to the best emergent and renowned Portuguese Artists to show what Portugal has to offer artistically.

In autumn 2015, a panel of Judges has selected from the 100 shortlisted, the 20 Portuguese artists who will represent their work in London, using the opening as a launch pad and as a circuit project that will go through several museums/galleries in Portugal and Brazil.

PortugArt aims to attract talent and engage the Portuguese artistic community, providing a proactive tool to showcase talent, potential and ideas, that not only relate to Portugal but the current affairs all over the world. In portugart.org you will be able to see and enjoy the artworks of all the shortlisted and selected top 20 artists.

PORTUGART – The best of modern Portuguese Art in the heart of London

 

Mara Alves founder of PortugArt, D Group the leading board level business network in the UK, supported by the Portuguese Embassy and other leading contemporary artists are combining to bring 20 leading Portuguese artists to D Group’s premises in Grafton Street, London W1.

This is the most significant demonstration of the vibrancy of modern Portuguese art that London has seen for many years. As such this represents a unique opportunity for companies and institutions with strong Portuguese connections to profile themselves and their businesses alongside the best of the country’s modern culture.

The Portuguese Ambassador to London, His Excellency João de Vallera comments:

“I commend Mara Alves for bringing PortugArt to the heart of Mayfair’s world famous gallery district. I strongly welcome the aims of this project to showcase a group of emerging artists from different artistic expressions, underpinning the awareness of contemporary Portuguese art in the UK. The Portuguese Embassy warmly extends its support to PortugArt and its goals.”

Mara Alves, well-known London based Portuguese modern artist, comments:

“I and the other 20 artists are overjoyed, not only because we are able to bring together such an exceptional body of art at a venue located in what is rapidly becoming the leading street for modern art in London, but also to do with the support of our embassy and their fantastic staff and within the patronage of D-Contemporary and the support of its extensive network of top UK business connections. We have no doubt that PortugArt is going to become the project that will inspire and support our Portuguese artists, giving them a great opportunity to showcase their works in 2016 and beyond “.
