Brazilian consul-general's wife opens painting exhibition in Istanbul
ISTANBULIstanbul’s ISO Art Gallery is set to host a painting exhibition by Solange Greco, wife of the consul-general of Brazil in Istanbul. Titled “Remains of My Life in Istanbul and Elsewhere,” the exhibition will open on July 14.
Born in Sao Paulo, Greco studied plastic arts at a very young age. After marrying a diplomat, she had the opportunity to live in many countries and become acquainted with diverse cultures.
Her paintings not only reproduce visual aspects of the places in which she has lived, but much more: The works show a deep, subjective observation of different cultures and of their environments. Each country has its own colors and its own way of living. The artist’s style may be regarded as expressionistic realism.
Since Greco’s background is not only Brazilian but also Italian, she blends these two cultures in her works.
After three years in Istanbul, Greco has arrived at another stage in her painting. The exhibition features both Turkish archetypes, as well as other international themes.
