My collection Brasília is inspired by the architectural landscapes of the city, while in dialogue with the varied cultural roots of its inhabitants. Many countries with big new cities such as India, Russia and China face similar dialogues. Colours and themes from Brasilia’s daily life reflect on the richness of the natural and cultural wealth its citizen’s share. But the colours also reflect the local landscape: the ochre and greens of the natural environment; the red tones of the soil; the deep blue of the sky over Brasilia; the grey of concrete.
The collection Brasilia was selected by the ECT, the Brazilian postal company, to illustrate 6 million national stamps. One painting of the collection Brasilia also appears in Brazilian schoolbooks for educational purposes.
