Thais Beltrame "happy life"

Posted on August 29, 2012 by UNITED PHOTO PRESS MAGAZINE

September 1st is the opening of the exhibition of Thais Beltrame "happy life" a production of Galeria de Babel Black & Espaço Revista CULT, don't miss it !

There are 15 drawings from the artist's first solo show in Sao Paulo, all done in black ink on paper, a production from her most recent work, as well as interventions in the space. "the happy life" was inspired by a poem of the same name, originally written by the Roman poet Marcus Valerius Martialis nearly two thousand years ago.

Centuries later the same poem was translated into English, and transcends time to talk about what is seemingly simple and mundane, and what humans crave for centuries but do not seem able to achieve. The conjecture of it is anything that could make our lives happy.

The artist Thais Beltrame is 35 years old, lives and works in São Paulo. Studied in Brazil and in the United States. She has illustrated several books and magazines, and has also had her work exhibited in galleries in Brazil, U.S. and England.
