Fernando Chamarelli is a graphic designer, illustrator and visual artist. After initially drawing cartoons, caricatures and portraits he later became involved in street art and tattooing: it is by merging these different mediums that he creates his art.
Chamarelli lives in Brazil, a multicultural country of contrasts, many of which are reflected in his work. Everpresent, is the influence of Brazilian popular culture and pre-Columbian indigenous art on the Sao Paulo-based artist. His work includes mosaic, geometric elements, organic forms and harmonic lines connecting symbols, legends, philosophies, religions and customs of ancient and modern civilizations.
Chamarelli has to date exhibited extensively in North and South America, as well as in Europe, and the UK. ‘Lost Civilization’ will feature nine new acrylic on canvas works and will mark his first solo show in Los Angeles.
