Conceptual Artist and Photographer Henrique Souza will be unveiling to South Florida his newest project “House of Art”, located at 415 NW 26th Street. This gallery and working studio will feature local and international artists.

A native of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Henrique Souza left his native homeland, in 2000, for the bright lights of New York City. Armed with his Fashion Photographer’s Portfolio, $250.00 dollars, and a friend’s address, he began his new life. He work diligently, and in 2003 he was invited to participate in the Fire Island Pines Bi-Annual Show. The rest, is as they say, history. Featured in Art Basel Miami for the past few years, this young man knows what it is to come up through the ranks. Although his journey has had its hard times, Henrique feels very honored and privileged. He is very grateful to all who have inspired and helped him along the way.

The Souza House of Art is dedicated to that spirit of success. The concept is to have a space where talented Artists can feature their work. The gallery will feature different exhibits, as well as “works in progress”. The usage of reclaimed items for the creation of art is encouraged. The concept of affordable art is also part of the creative philosophy.

Inspired by a range of modern predecessors, including Salvador Dali, Henrique Souza’s photographic style incorporates and explores an arrange of mixed medias and elements. Photographs printed on sheets of commercial lucite and aluminum are incorporated. An interesting blend of Industrial and organic elements are significant to his creations. His work expresses the dichotomy of our modern industrial, time drive lives, alongside our humanity. Intimacy, the need for personal space, curiosity, and the mischievous nature of man is also echoed, as seen in his show “Guess Who’s Looking-Pool Peep Shots”.

Miami will be the host of the hottest new gallery, and the future Art Masters of the new century… Souza House of Art.
