Co-founder Kurator & Art Advisor, apArt Private Gallery

Thais Marin has been a business and strategic professional in advertising since 1997 and has handled several brands such as Disney, McDonald’s, Coca-­‐Cola, Unilever, Avon, Embraer, Carrefour, Extra, iG Internet, Bradesco Bank, DreamWorks, Turner, Nickelodeon, Fox, Paramount, Mattel, LucasFilm, Marvel, Sanrio, Lego, Hasbro, DicComics, WarnerBros, among others on a global, regional and local level. Being a multitasking, avant-­‐garde professional, she wanted to go beyond creativity, so she has developed an innovative art project called apArt Private Gallery. It’s the first art gallery in a private apart event seen in Brazil, Colombia, New York and last year in Cannes. Through this project she can be in closer contact with creative professionals, whom she believes she may be able to help inspiring through their own art and also generate new opportunities to collectors and new appreciators. Creative writing is another of her passions. She has published two young adult fiction books from the trilogy called “Wild Horses”, which are enjoying recognition from many readers as well as some celebrities.
