Idá Abreu is a major sculptor and painter in the Cape Verdean and French art world. He grew up in Achada Santo António, a populous neighborhood in Paraia (Cape Verde islands) where he witnessed life’s challenges, as well as the inner wealth and beauty of humble people. This insular environment fed and bolstered his creativity and gave him a taste for multicolored backgrounds and a keen sense of detail clearly observable throughout his art works.
