Bailarinas de Portinari
Cerâmica Portinari has launched a new collection inspired by Brazilian painter Candido Portinari (1903 – 1962). Considered one of the most influential Brazilian painters, Portinari’s work portrayed the emotions, joys and diversity of Brazilian people and reflected their traditions.
The collection, called Bailarinas de Portinari, is based on the ballerinas often painted by Portinari. Their shapes, forms and colours inspired the porcelain tiles’ triangular format and colour palette, and the beauty of the paintings’ brushstrokes was carried over to the pieces to give them texture and movement through organic lines.
