DISTINCT from most of the exhibitors in the Art Hall of the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center, the Bravo Art Group booth, a Tel Aviv-based art gallery whose history dates back 100 years, offered visitors a feast for their eyes with its colorful metal sculptures and paintings mainly depicting butterflies, flowers, athletes and bustling cities.

“As you can see, everything here is very colorful, we focused a lot on this because we want to bring something different to China,” said Charly Darwich, cofounder of the Bravo Art Group, adding that the colorfulness of their works “represents happiness and joyful life.”

Such vitality is also reflected in the techniques used to create the paintings and sculptures. “We have a lot of metal work so they (paintings and sculptures) give people a 3-D feeling of movement and action,” the cofounder said.

He cited the work of David Gerstein, one of their representative artists, as an example. “He always puts wood on the metal to create sculptures featuring moving things, such as fish, butterflies and birds, which embodies that Israeli society is always moving, happy and colorful and has different kinds of people and cultures.”

According to Darwich, the sculptures and paintings are perfect for any location including people’s homes, offices and lobbies as well as outdoor places such as gardens and plazas. The prices for the pieces can range from a few thousand yuan to even 1 million yuan (US$145,200) depending on the size and the artists.

Although it was the gallery’s first time attending the cultural fair, Darwich said that the fair “is very nice and has many different sections.”
