Lazarides Gallery concludes the year presenting Tropical Miscegenation, a new exciting solo exhibition by Raphael Sagarra a.k.a Finok, one of Brazil's most talented emerging artists. Born and raised in Sao Paolo, Finok has painted large scale murals and artworks across the globe using his iconic palette of greens. The artist exhibited in South America, Europe, India, Nepal and Russia.

 

Finok's body of work reflects the diversity and eclectic customs of Brazil, his home country: a puzzle of ethnic and cultural backgrounds coexhisting in a complex and stratified society. As explained by the artist: "The foundations of Brazil and its culture are made up of small portions of the entire world. The Brazilian way of life and society make this explicit; you see the miscegenation through the music, the beliefs, the culture and the gastronomy."

 

Tropical Miscegenation is Finok's first London exhibition and includes a series of mixed media artworks, sculptures and a site specific installation..

Finok in Waterloo

In conjunction with his exhibition; Tropical Miscegenation, Finok was invited to paint a mural at Waterloo station.
