I was recently invited to join a very interesting art project by the artist IMPREINT. The name of the project is Portraits and it’s based on a very simple concept: the artist (IMPREINT) painted 1000 balloons a few years ago and while painting them he always said the paintings were like people: all different, imperfect yet all beautiful. He started Portraits in December last year to involve the people in his art in an uplifting way, unifying so the people around the world with a simple concept.

The balloon in this project is what links people from different parts of the world to his project.

My friend Juliana Natali was my photographer in this post, taking my photograph after having brunch with friends at Confeitaria Colombo, in Forte de Copacabana, a very interesting and touristic place in Copacabana beach, Rio de Janeiro, from where we can have a beautiful view of Copacabana beach and Sugar Loaf on the background.

To know a little more about the artist and this project visit his webpage and his Facebook page.

I hope you enjoy this project as much as I did!!

Have a nice day!!
