Lady in Red - Galeria de Arte is pleased to present a solo exhibition of an amazing Portuguese artist, Helena de Medeiros.
Helena de Medeiros studied at the London Fashion School and at the Escola Superior de Artes e Design do Porto. Since 1990, she has solo exhibitions of paintings and many of her works are in private and municipal collections.
The artist’s recent participation in collective and international exhibitions includes "Edgar Degas no mundo do ballet" – with special participation of Paula Rego, a well known Portuguese artist.
Her paintings have been keeping an important dialogue with her Costume Designer work, dedicated especially to Contemporary Ballet. With a career spanning over two decades, she has been collaborating with prestigious artistic directors and several world-renowned dance companies, such as Bolshoi Ballet (Russia), La Scala Ballet Company (Italy), Introdans (Netherlands), Ballett Basel (Switzerland), Ballett Dortmund (Germany), Ballet Gulbenkian (Portugal), Ballett Hannover (Germany), Balé da Cidade de São Paulo (Brazil), Companhia Nacional de Bailado (Portugal), Fondazione de la Danza Aterballetto (Italy), Compagnie Le Guetteur (France), Gauthier Dance / Dance Company Theaterhaus Stuttgart (Germany), Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal (Canada), Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal (Canada), National Ballet of China (China).
The artist is currently exhibiting at the Cerveira Art Biennial as an invited artist.
