Jose Resende @ Galeria Paulo Fernandes

On the corners of Rua do Rosario and Rua Visconde de Itaborai, in downtown Rio, you will find large scale works by Brazilian artist Jose Resende, displayed right outside avant-garde Galeria Paulo Fernandes. The steel sculptures are very striking and powerful and caught my eye from a block's distance. The diminutive gallery is very unique in itself, with tall exposed stone walls and just a single choice metal sculpture prominently displayed in the middle. The scent of eucalyptus, reminiscing of a sauna, is in a intriguing contrast to the cool temperature inside.
You can see more of Resende's work by clicking this post's header and the gallery is located at Rua do Rosario, 38.
