Carybé: The Colours of Bahia
3 June - 17 July 2015 | Mon-Fri 11am-6pm
Sala Brasil, Embassy of Brazil, 14-16 Cockspur Street, London SW1Y 5BL
The Embassy of Brazil presents a collection of 44 vibrant and eye-catching silk-screen works by Hector Julio Páride de Bernabó, better known as Carybé. Though born in Argentina, the artist lived for almost fifty years in the northeastern Brazilian state of Bahia, portraying the daily life and religious syncretism of the region's people. Inspired by many different aspects of Bahian culture, especially those linked to the Afro-Brazilian religion of Candomblé, Carybé's work took Bahia to the outside world.
