Brazillian artist recognized by Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal
Several wall murals by a Brazilian artist have caused quite a stir on the Internet. The murals managed to capture the attention of Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal.
He gave the painter a special greeting and praised his efforts on social media.
The artist is famous for bringing many boring Brazilian streets to life.
To illustrate, he combines many trees and shrubs with painted faces.
The “Rock On” actor shared a photo of a wall mural drawn by an artist.
He wrote: “Most hairdressers will fight for their money.”
The wall murals are painted by Trindade painter Fabio Gomes.
He is particularly famous for the bright and eye-catching details of his arts from flowers to birds.
Fabio Gomes is especially famous for celebrating People of Color’s unique hairstyle.
Gomes paints girls and women who wear their afro hair and braids with pride.
While featuring flowering trees to portray her “natural hair” hat and fusing elements of the urban environment,
the source of inspiration for two of his last pieces are a children’s model called Egypt Sarai.
The wall mural showing purple bougainvillea like Sarai’s hair particularly got praises by many big Hollywood stars like Viola Davis and Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles.
In an interview with Metropoles, the artist told how his life changed especially after these famous people began to share his work.
“I have received several invitations to paint in other cities, I have planned a trip to Rio de Janeiro and I plan to go to work in Portugal. I couldn’t even imagine that, ”he told the news website.
And while grateful for the recognition, he said it was more enjoyable when people showed up at the venues to take pictures of their creations.
In fact, there is an open-air gallery of his other arts in Rua Belas Artes.
He painted the walls of several houses to create a panoramic masterpiece.
