Stride Arts Solo Exhibition:

The Hand of Man

Stride Arts is pleased to present The Hand of Man, paintings by Brazilian artist Totonho. The exhibition, showing over thirty colorful and meaningful paintings by renowned Brazilian painter Totonho, was on view from November 21 to December 15, 2019.

“We are honored to present Totonho’s first solo exhibition at our gallery”. “Totonho’s paintings not only celebrate the beauty and purity of nature, they also redeem one’s hope and inspire viewers to love and protect our environment, and to dream and to strive for a better ecological future.” The exhibition The Hand of Man takes viewers on an extraordinary trip through the Brazilian rain forest, showcasing its forest and fauna. The beautiful trees, plants, rivers and birds in Totonho's paintings remind us of the importance of nature. In addition, his critical paintings show the side of mankind we don't like; destruction, devastation, and even racism and the inequality it engenders. Still his critical paintings often have an element of the positive due to Totonho’s optimism and dreams of a better future for all. We wish to introduce and share Totonho’s story, art, and vision with New Yorkers and the world”,
