Venus Series at Connecting Dots Art Exhibition

On May 18th 2019 was the Opening of the collective exhibition “Connecting Dots”, organized and curated by a collaboration between Sino-Architecture, NSHSG, Elevate Art, Hush Hush, and Shanghai Madness Creative Collective, using the Shanghai Sketch Group in WeChat as a main platform for promotion, submission and selection.

I was selected to participate in this exhibition along other 42 highly talented artists, some of them were showing their work for the first time as some other artist have a more extensive trajectory.

The three pieces I submitted belong to a series of drawings called Venus I created back in 2017, inspired in the female figure going through the process of pregnancy as a tribute to all women who feel unattractive while going through this difficult yet beautiful period.

Although I produced these pieces a while ago I haven’t been able to show them in an exhibition before, that is due to their suggestive content and the restrictions and prohibitions the Chinese government impose on the diffusion of material that could be perceived and pornographic, erotic or simply offensive, regardless of the media. It is not easy to find a platform that would dare to show this kind of work.
