A walk down art gallery lane, in Porto

In Porto I found this new art gallery, anémona, showing this beautiful pieces by the young brasilian artist Marta Emília. She glues small pieces of painted paper to get this intricate, some organic and some geometric, paterns. The titles of the collages come from the lyrics of brasilian songs.

I particularly like this one titled "Brocal Dourado". It is detailed like an embroidery or a lace and it also reminds me of those colorfull underwater scenes from the coral reefs. Excelent.

In Galeria Presença, I saw this amazing sculptures by Pedro Valdez Cardoso. I like the clash between tribal art and the luxury fabrics (and not so luxury stuff like dusters and pins):

In the same gallery there was this piece by Alexandre Farto:

Works made by João Leonardo with cigarette butts he collected during a stay in Germany, from April 2010 to May 2011:

Adorei as obras de arte com recortes de flores coloridas.
