Since the beginning of the blog we’ve featured designers and artists from all around the globe; including Brazil, the country where I was born and live. Even though we had some Brazilian artists, no one featured was from my state or even my city, until today. In this post I will feature a really talented artist from Porto Alegre. He goes by Bruno 9Li.
You probably have seen or read something about him. His work is really unique and stylish, as he said, inspired by life experiences in different parts of the world.
Bruno 9Li's inspirations come from daily life experiences of the diverse population of its residents (European, Japanese and Latin American descent) as well as his search for life's meaning through spirituality, alchemy and cultural symbolisms.
He often speaks of "all being one," and is deeply aware of the unity of people, animals and nature itself. 9Li creates works of art that share this vision with his audience through epic encounters of natural and supernatural beings. These encounters, depending on the viewer, can be seen as mythic morality tales of the past, or a keen foretelling of the future.
These days Bruno lives in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and he’s had exhibited his work in tons of cities, including the Transfer, that was where I saw one of his pieces. For more information I really recommend you visit his website at http://www.bruno9li.com/. There are some fantastic pieces of art; and videos as well.
