The well-known artista Ina Color Will be presenting her latest series of handmade porcelain sculptures in Barcelona, inspired by the Ibo District where she carried out a volunteering project supported by the IBO Foundation.
The self-taught Catalan artist was living on Ibo – part of the Quirimbas archipelago in Mozambique – for three months, during which her passion for the creative world intensified and she discovered the artistic credentials of the children living there. ‘Ibo is an island full of artists, and a source of inspiration for all who visit. In my work, I express not only the island, but the influence of its residents’.
The exhibition, entitled ‘IBO, AN ISLAND OF ARTISTS’, will take place in a space donated by Lux Habitat, 2, Plaça Sant Jaume. It will be open to the public for a week, from Thursday 29th November.
It’s the second time that the ‘artist of the light’, as she calls herself, is collaborating with the organisation, raising funds through the sales of her work. She did the same last year with the painting exhibition ‘Colours for Ibo’. Once again, the profits will go to the IBO Foundation’s development projects which work to improve people’s quality of life on the island.
