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 .
