Bella Cardim is a Miami-based Brazilian born visual artist. Cardim’s artistic research and output are housed around emotional hunger and body image awareness. After an extensive career in commercial food photography, Cardim now uses her practice to investigate the psychological impact of food in terms of nourishment and indulgence. Her conceptual framework allows her to draw attention to emotional eating disorders and excessive consumption.
The artist has recently been selected by "The 55 Project" for a solo show at The Bonnier Gallery. Bella has participated in collective shows in New York, Miami, and São Paulo and was selected for the 2022 Florida Biennial curated by Ylva Rouse. Furthermore, her presence in the June 2023 ConTEXT II exhibition at Art Fluent in Boston, USA, garnered her the “Director's Choice" award with "I Will Not Be Ashamed of My Body," a part of the series "Writing Lines."
