The artist is Anderson Debernardi, and he was born in a village near the Amazonian rainforest. I love his paintings because they have a psychadelic feel and combine a plethora of colours together almost seamlessly to create a sense of mystique and it seems that the paintings have a life of their own.

Project Ego – Initial

  I was inspired to experiment with patterns and colours. The initial rough idea was to try out clean lines and cool, analogous colours on the colour wheel.
