Recently exhibiting at the Bear Gallery in London has been Swedish artist Amara Por Dios. The gallery, on Great Eastern Street in Shoreditch, is often used as a showcase for up and coming artists and so is a fitting venue for Amaras first solo exhibition outside of Sweden called ‘Piece of Mined’.
With a style which looks like it’s been inspired from native South American art, her work is instantly recognisable. Recent visitors to Brick Lane in London will have no doubt already spotted her vibrant shutter painting at the entrance to Grimsby Street.
Opposite the exhibition Amara has also been invited by Global Street Art to paint the four boards overlooking the road. She’s set herself a tough deadline, to complete them all within three days. A big ask considering the Brick Lane shutter on it’s own was a three day job in itself.
The end result promises to be spectacular though and Amara adds to the growing list of international artists to have displayed their work here. Her show at the Bear Gallery sadly ends tonight so, for those who couldn’t attend, a flavour of the art you missed is below 🙂
