New from Portugal
One of these days, we are going to have to have a contest to see if you can guess whether the painting is created by a man or a woman. When I first viewed Rute Santos' work, and being unfamiliar with the Portuguese language, I assumed her work was created by a man. Maybe I'm a bad guesser, but I guessed wrong. This has happened to me before. Which begs the question, what part does gender play in art?
Rute has a wonderfully distinctive style, and a resume a mile long. I'm talking about the latest addition to buyoutsidethebox. com, Rute Santos from Lisbon, Portugal. She was educated at the IADE-Visual Arts, Design and Marketing Institute,and the National Society of Fine Arts, both located in Lisboa, and has participated in many exhibits. Read more about Santos:
