The Brazilian visual artist Milenna Saraiva works are presented in The Peach Galley, which represented the artist after a successful partnership last year.
The “SUPERNATURAL” exposure is a multi-media series of art work divided in three lines of work: photography compositions, water-colour portraits on paper and acrylic and oil paintings on canvas.
This series represents a personal journey of exploration of Nature versus Technology, Man versus Machine, Analogic versus Digital, and our role as human beings within this new and ever changing landscape, suggesting a return to a fearless and primordial state.
Milenna was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. “Mimi” comes from a family of musicians and artists who have really inspired and motivated her. Milenna primarily works with oil paint on canvas and on wood but is constantly experimenting with new mediums such as video projections on a painted canvas, drawing, sculpture and some collage. In Milenna’s latest series called “Psychoactive Renderings” she explores the absolute right side of the brain with acrylic and ink drawings.
The Peach Gallery was founded in November 2012 by a group of local art dealers, collectors and makers, including the legendary Walter Moos. The gallery’s mission is to present the public with a unique and lively mix of local and international artists that are established and emerging.
