XIII International Biennial of Artistic Ceramics of Aveiro
In the context of the XIII International Biennial of Artistic Ceramics of Aveiro, Aleluia Cerâmicas was invited to participate in this initiative, which will take place from the 28th October to the 4th December in the Museum of Aveiro.
Its participation included the installation of a manual painting panel entitled “I love Portugal”, with 3,60×3,40 meters, created to be exhibited during the international ceramics fair – Cevisama, event that took place in February 2017 in Valencia, Spain.
Inspired by the concept of “Urban Art” and being the tiles a distinctive expression of Portuguese culture, the masters of the manual painting of Aleluia Cerâmicas created a panel involving in song and poetry the richness of our architectural heritage. This composition under a background of geometric compositions is focused on the life centered on the sea, a way of communication that allows establishing connections between people, whether by written, sung or edified message.
It has also been installed a curtain of scales, formed by ceramic pieces with the format that gives I the name and displayed in an organic and original way.
There will also be pieces of manual painting under the theme “When tradition and modernity meet”; these pieces are part of a collection called “Artisan Selection” – a tribute to Portuguese tile art perpetuated by Aleluia Cerâmicas.
Looking to keep this tradition, Aleluia Cerâmicas has, to this day, hand painting on tiles.
The Artisan Selection is a tribute to this noble art, through the reproduction and reinterpretation of patterns that make us travel through our history and culture.
We would like to invite you to visit us at this important event dedicated to artistic ceramics.
