250 DOGS

ExhibitionsComments Off on 250 DOGS

250DOGS is an art project to raise awareness and support for the extremely poor conditions of the innumerable amount of street dogs in Brazil.

A limited edition of 250 dog sculptures ( 4 different models, signed by the artist), made of resin and marble, represent  the `Vira-Lata`( `turning cans`), the so called street dogs in Brazil.

With ‘250 dogs’ I want to focus on the huge contradictions between the miserable conditions of the vira-latas in the streets and a very pushing pet industry that promotes animals as luxurious accessories together with expensive equipment, thus so also disposable and/or replaceable as consumer objects.

The proceeds from the sale of the 250 dog sculptures will go to projects and campaigns in Brazil that focus on changing attitudes towards these situations .
