    Art, at its best, tells a story that is both unique to the artist and relatable to the viewer. The work of Priscila De Carvalho is just that. Inspired by urban scenes of her native Brazil, Carvalho’s work transcends any cultural or geographical limitations that might exist with a narrative that is so personal.
