BronxArtSpace has invited Ananda Nahú and Izolag from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to exhibit their new work alongside Bronx photographer Ricky Flores from July 8 to August 8 in Faces from the Block.

Over the last eight years painters Nahú and Izolag have collaborated with Flores who is known for photographing the borough in the 70s and 80s. Flores’ images immortalized an entire generation of youth, breakdancers, teenagers on stoops, fires and abandoned buildings. Nahú and Izolag found parallels in Flores’ work to their own environment and were inspired to create murals and paintings based on his iconic images. Faces from the Block will create a forum for this international collaboration.

During their stay Nahú and Izolag will also create a new mural with youth at the nearby Mitchel Housing playground sponsored by Casita Maria with a grant from Bronx Health REACH.

Beginning July 10 Nahú and Izolag will lead a 4-day painting workshop for youth. Sign up here.

The gallery is open Wednesday thru Saturday 12:00-6:30pm. For more information, email
