Brazilian multi-disciplinary artist Rimon Guimarães recently worked on a new wall in Largo do Arouche, São Paulo. His artwork entitled “Pindorama” is 777 square meter mural. Pindorama refers to Brazil before colonization. the jaguar symbolizes the land in which we live in — the environmental awareness and strength. Its tail is a snake bringing the symbolism of the sub world, the underground, what we don’t see. And the bird symbolizes the air, being a messenger of the world.
The mural also features a character that was inspired by the feminine clothing of the “Jurupixunas” and of the facial paintings of the “Xicrins” and “Kayapós” people. “Pindorama” was painted with a photocatalytic paint that filters the air (equivalent to about 750 trees).
Rimon Guimarães was born in Curitiba, Brazil, a self-taught artist who seeks through life, travel and cultural exchanges to transmute space-time, producing works that dialogue with the accessibility of information and contemporary media, such as large-scale murals, paintings, drawings , prints, photographs, videos, installations, performances, compositions and audio. He is best known for his brightly coloured mural work and have carried out works in countries like Gambia, Malaysia, Italy, Holland, Germany, Denmark, USA, Argentina, Brazil among others.
