Carnaval artístico com Go Carvalho e Carol Passos, os criadores das aquarelas Pestilento / Artistic carnaval with Go Carvalho and Carol Passos, creators of Pestilento Watercolors


Olá, queridos leitores!
Aqui no Brasil e nos noticiários internacionais o Carnaval é destaque, mas como não gosto muito, invisto em outras áreas da vida e da arte.
Pois bem, neste final de semana participei do Bloquinho da Remela e do Pestilento, promovido pelos criadores das Aquarelas Pestilento, numa linda padaria na região da Avenida Paulista.
Já faz algum tempo que os tenho acompanhado no Facebook e nutro por eles uma grande admiração pois, num país onde só se encontra aquarela importada e cara nas lojas de arte, conhecer artistas que fazem sua própria aquarela é fascinante. Para mim, é retornar aos heróicos tempos em que artistas e artesãos dominavam seus ofícios por amor ao que faziam. Nestes tempos massificados, é uma raridade preciosa.

Hello dear readers!
Here in Brazil and in the international news the Carnaval parties are the hotspot, but as I don't appreciate them, I invest my atention and money in other areas of life and art.
So, in this weekend I decided to pay a visit to Remela and Pestilento's party, promoted by the creators of Pestilento Handmade Watercolors, in a very beautiful bakery house nearby Paulista Avenue.
I have followed them in Facebook for some time and I have a great admiration for them because, in a country where I only find foreign and so expensive watercolors brands in art supplies stores, it is so fascinating to meet and to be acquainted with artists that make their own (and high quality) watercolor brand.
For me, who make handmade blank books, it is like to return to that heroic times when artists and artisans mastered their trades because they loved what they make.
In these times of mass market, it is a precious rarity.
