Drake Burnette In ‘Lush Life’ By Josh Olins For WSJ Magazine September 2013 AOC Sensual Fashion
This just posted editorial of Drake Burnette by Josh Olins for WSJ Magazine took us to mining magnate Bernardo Paz’s Inhotim, a vast, 74 acre garden of modern art communing with nature in the hills of southeast Brazil. About 1,000 employees including “curators, botanists and concrete pourers, swarm around Inhotim”, writes the NYTimes in this March 2012 feature article.
A whiff of megalomania seems to emanate from Inhotim’s eucalyptus forests, where Mr. Paz has perched more than 500 works by foreign and Brazilian artists. His botanical garden contains more than 1,400 species of palm trees. He glows when speaking of Inhotim’s rare and otherworldly plants, like the titun arum from Sumatra, called the “corpse flower” because of its hideous stench.
Not bad for a high school drop out! WSJ Magazine formerly did a short feature on Inhotim in Brazil Three Ways: Art, Eco-Escape, Surf City.
