'MIND'S EYE FUNFAIR': RAFAEL SILVEIRA (BRAZIL)
19th MARCH - 11th APRIL 2015
OPENING RECEPTION 19th MARCH 2015, 6-9PM

Atomica Gallery and ATP Festival are delighted to announce 'Mind's Eye Funfair', an exhibition of new paintings by Brazilian artist Rafael Silveira (b.1978). Opening March 2015 at Atomica Gallery in Soho, London, 'Mind's Eye Funfair' will be the artist's debut European solo exhibition.

Rafael Silveira's imaginative work combines figurative classical painting, comic-inspired imagery and surreal subject matter. Like portals into an alternate dimension, his paintings invite the viewer to abandon everyday paradigms and embrace the unknown.

Currently based in Curitiba, Brazil, Silveira quit an award-winning career in advertising to dedicate himself to his fine art practice. He has since gone on to exhibit in prominent international galleries including Jonathan Levine in New York City and the Museum of Modern Art in Rio De Janeiro.

'Mind's Eye Funfair' will be the first showing of Silveira's work in the UK and was made possible by the support of ATP Festival!

Join us for the opening reception on Thursday 19th March 6-9pm to join us for the first peek of this wonderful exhibition! Rafael will be present at the opening. Email rsvp@atomicagallery.com.
