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. Cardim's artistic career, commencing in 2020, has been marked by notable accomplishments. Recent highlights include her last solo exhibition, "No One is an Island," curated by Adriana Herrera at The Mifa gallery, and her selection for a solo exhibition at The Bonnier Gallery in Miami by "The 55 Project," both in 2023. In 2022, Cardim was selected to participate in the Florida Biennial, where her works "Dysmorphia" and "Restrained" were standout pieces among thousands of submissions. Additionally, her engagement in group exhibitions like "Bolsa de Ficção" in São Paulo and "ConTEXT II" at Art Fluent in Boston, where she received the "Director’s Choice" award, has further enriched her artistic journey.
