PetroReconcavo sponsors book by Bahian artist Sérgio Rabinovitz


The book, released in December 2019, was written by the poet Claudius Portugal, friend of Sérgio, and also brings 150 images that reproduce the 40 years of his trajectory and statements by personalities such as Belchior, Carybé and Mário Cravo Jr. about the artist . “The reader will leaf through it as if it were a great album of paintings and drawings. We mix works from 30 years ago with those from now. This shows that his work has a uniqueness, that they themselves bear his signature ”, says Claudius. The book is bilingual, has 255 pages, was published by the P55 Edition.

According to Marcelo Magalhães, CEO of Petrorecôncavo, this type of sponsorship has always been aligned with the communication policy of the company, which has historically sought to encourage actions linked to the culture of Bahia and northeastern Brazil. “As part of the project, we will have an interaction with Sérgio with teachers and students from public schools in the municipality of Mata de São João, where the company’s headquarters are located. I’m sure it will be a very enriching experience ”, announces Marcelo.
