AYEOLA MOORE(Guadalupe)

AYEOLA MOORE is a visual artist from the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe.
After receiving a law diploma (Capacité en Droit) in 1974 from the Université de Paris-Sud, in France, she interrupted her law studies, returned to Guadeloupe and initiated a career in her long-standing life passion -African-based dance.
IN 2000, Ayeola’s innate artistic proclivity shifted to yet another life passion - painting.She moved to Brazil and, in2003, began painting full-time. She has never stopped since, developing as strikingly personal style that conflates dazzling colors and telluric forms.
Ayeola mounted her first exhibitions as private shows in her spacious personal gallery in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, in 2010, 2012 and 2014.
In 2015-16, she did her first public exhibition, a four-month, twenty-four piece solo show, at the Museu Afrobrasileiro de Bahia, Salvador, Brazil.
In 2016-17, she participated with five works in her first collective public exhibition, at PROMO-ARTE LATIN AMERICAN GALLERY, in Tokyo, Japan.
Ayeola divides her time between her native Guadeloupe and her adopted Brazil, countries informed by a rich African Cultural heritage. Admittedly, it is this twin Caribbean/Latin American environment that nourishes her perpetually restless, deeply contemplative inner landscape, which explodes into primal narratives of kaleidoscopic “color-visions” and metamorphosic “dream-shapes.” Ayeola Moore is married and is the moth of two children.

Manuel Mendive (Cuba)

Manuel Mendive Hoyo is perhaps the single most important Cuban artist today. Mendive, a major exponent of contemporary "Afro-cubanismo" in the visual arts, was born in 1944 into a Santería-practicing family. He graduated from the prestigious Academia de Artes Plásticas San Alejandro in Havana in 1962 with honors in sculpture and painting. He held his first one-man show at the Center of Art in Havana in 1964. Since then he has exhibited in some of the most important international venues. The Cuban booth at the XLII International Biennial Exhibition of Modern Art in Venice in 1988 was completely dedicated to his works. His work can be found in Museums and galleries in many countries including the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Havana, the Musee d'Art Moderne in Paris; as well as museums in Russia, Somalia, Congo, Norway, Denmark, Finland and the U.S and other countries. He is well-known not only for his painting and soft sculpture, but for his performance pieces in which he paints dancers' naked bodies and creates theatrical backdrops and environments. Representing an important strain of Cuban life, Mendive's multi-media work reflects his syncretic take on religion, philosophy, ethnography, art and dance.
