Fernando Chamarelli

Fernando Chamarelli, a São Paolo, Brazil based artist, paints graphic figures utilizing colorful geometry and symbols to highlight civilizations from the past, present and future. Influenced by pre-Columbian Indigenous art, he seeks to communicate fluid connections between humans, animals, nature and the cosmos.

In Controlling the Wind, Fernando’s first 130-foot long mural painted entirely in aerosol, he presents Tupã, an entity said to control wind, thunder and lightning in Brazilian Indigenous mythology. Tupã represents energy and motion, which Fernando thought of while viewing the power of the train speeding through this space.
