Born and raised in Brazil, artist Fernando Chamarelli has a degree in graphic design and illustration. His early artistic interests started with drawing cartoons, caricatures, and realistic portraits. Later, his interests expanded to street art and tattoo. By merging these different backgrounds, he developed his signature style. Fernando still resides in Brazil, a multicultural country of contrasts. This dynamic and colorful environment inspires his work. Fernando’s paintings are composed of mosaic, geometric elements, organic forms, and harmonic lines. His visual imagery connects symbols, legends, philosophies, religions, and customs of ancient and modern civilizations. Sensed within Fernando’s diverse visual language is a strong influence of Brazilian popular culture and pre-Columbian indigenous art. Fernando has worked and exhibited in the United States and Europe.
