BEBETH

(Elisabeth Rodrigues Faber) – 1949 – Niteroi, RJ. The family settled in Petrópolis where Bebeth spent her childhood. When he entered college, he transferred to Rio de Janeiro and majored in architecture. It was only in 1993, after 25 years of architecture, that the determined and obstinate nature of the painter Bebeth got the better of the architect Elisabeth, dedicating feelings that had been hidden for so long. Her first solo exhibition took place in 1996, at the Museu Internacional de Arte Naif, Rio de Janeiro, at the invitation and support of Lucien Finkelstein, who invited her to inaugurate a series of exhibitions scheduled for MIAN: “The Great Future of Native Art” and wrote on the occasion about her art: “For our happiness Bebeth's bucolic lyricism has an impact on all her themes and even on her colors; its greens, pinks, yellows, reds have the freshness of the world's creation colors. This freshness permeates all the paintings, which overflow with tenderness in their poetic universe, an authentic breath of fresh air”. He started his regular exhibition at the Jacques Ardies Gallery in 2001. In the same year he participated in a group exhibition at the Musée Olimpique de Lausanne, Switzerland. In 2003, he exhibited at the Broward Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA. He participated in the Bienal de Arte Naif Brasileira at SESC de Piracicaba in 2004. In 2014.
