Coimbra, Portugal -International Surrealism Now is the largest international surrealist exhibition in the World, presenting 107 of the world’s leading surrealism artists from 45 countries.

“As always I´m doing something different and the idea to exhibit inTimes Square in New York shows how the mass media are our modern means to show our art,”  Ribeiro said.

Ribeiro’s work has been featured at the U.S.Embassy in Lisbon, in the  PortugueseAmerican Journal, in DigitalMeets CulturePressenzafrmetroNews.ruPravda in PortugueseHuffingtonpost, TheHerald News, AssociatedPress and many other publications (link).
