Ballerina - Eduardo Kobra - Eden Gallery

About The Artwork

"Ballerina," an exquisite acrylic painting on canvas by Eduardo Kobra, captures the elegance and grace of a dancer in a unique and modern light. The artwork features a ballerina clad in a pristine white dress, positioned under a radiant spotlight that seems to both illuminate and celebrate her form. What sets this work apart is the innovative use of Kobra's signature geometric designs, intricately laid out across the ballerina's skin. These patterns add a layer of complexity and contemporary flair to the traditional image of a ballerina. The juxtaposition of classic ballet imagery with bold, modernist designs creates a striking visual narrative. Kobra's artistry shines through in his ability to fuse classical subjects with his distinctive, vibrant style, bringing a fresh perspective to familiar themes. This painting is a testament to the versatility and creative vision that Kobra brings to the world of modern art. 

About The Artist

From São Paulo outskirts to the world: this is Eduardo Kobra. 

Born in 1975 in a poor neighborhood in São Paulo, Kobra began his career at 12 years old and, since then, has become one of the most recognized street artists in the world. With more than 5,000 murals over five continents. He currently holds the record for the largest graffiti mural in the world. First for creating his illustrious mural “Las Etnias” (The Ethnicities) for the 2016 Rio Olympics. Then a year later he beat his previous record with his monumental work at Cacau Show Headquarters, a masterpiece that took 700 hours to complete and more than doubled his 2016 record. Influenced by the pop-art movement and both modern and contemporary artists, the realism in his designs make his flat-surfaced enormously colourful wall paintings appear three-dimensional and alive with life.

With his project Greenpincel (2011), Kobra revealed his strong commitment to the environmental cause. Climate change, water pollution, deforestation, predatory fishing, and mistreatment of animals became strong themes present in his work. In “Stars of Peace”, Kobra depicts individuals who have given hope to the world through their lives, such as Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Malala Yousafzai, and Anne Frank.

Kobra is involved in social causes, such as food collection campaigns and initiatives aimed at bringing art to poor communities, especially children who have no access to basic amenities. In 2021, he started the Kobra Institute, which aims to bring art to vulnerable people in Brazil. During the pandemic, he led an initiative together with the private sector to raise funds to build oxygen plants for COVID-19 patients
