We recently saw some great paintings by Antonio Obá from the Pinault Collection at Bourse de Commerce in Paris. ⁠⁠Before Christmas, his first solo exhibition in Asia opened at X Museum—Beijing's ultra-contemporary private art museum.

Founded in 2020 by art collector Michael Xufu Huang, the institution has since hosted artists Issy Wood's and Christina Quarles' museum debuts on the continent.⁠⁠⁠

Tackling the relationships and contradictions within Brazil's cultural heritage, Obá's wondrous colour palette and disarming compositions was picked up by Mendes Wood DM, who has since showcased Obá's work in a run of solo exhibitions. ⁠⁠
