Rio de Janeiro, which has been so much the focus this year as the host of the Olympics, is the theme of the latest exhibition by Brazilian artist Flaminia Mantegazza in London.
Flaminia began working as an artist in the late 1990s in Rome, where she attended the Escola de Artes Decorativas, having previously studied at the Escola de Artes Visuais do Parque Lage in Rio de Janeiro.
Focusing on studying urban and metropolitan areas by observing their social and anthropological dynamics, the artist has exhibited her work in several European cities over the last ten years, including Rome, Milan, Turin, Capri, Lecce, Paris, Athens and Istanbul.
The current exhibition, which was curated by Damiana Enea, reveals Flaminia’s passion for the Cidade Maravilhosa, with its natural beauty and cultural intrigue, captured in the artist’s unique panoramic interpretation of Guanabara Bay in Rio.

When: 26 September – 14 October, Mon-Fri, 11am-6pm
