I most recently have become aware of the beautiful artwork of Brazilian street artist Luis Seven Martins. (L7M).
This artist creates elegant masterpieces, occasionally using owls or ducks as his subject though more commonly known for his colourful and quite simply beautiful bird murals.
Born 1988, in the countryside of São Paulo, it was from a young age that L7M began his relationship and passion for art. Throughout childhood he won many cultural awards though it was at the age of 13 he picked up his first spray can to paint with.
L7M embraced this new technique, which later in fact was to become his favourite! Through experimentation he combined spray with China ink, latex, pastel and acrylic thus creating the unique style for which he is known today.
Through geometrical elements, realism and simplistic use of colour, L7M effortlessly depicts the elegance and grace of birds encapturing always their energy and beauty.
He incorporates a perhaps contradictory use of technique, which however never fails in every mural to result in an elegant and thought provoking masterpiece for onlookers. (“Sophisticated Chaos”)
This apparent melting pot of human emotion in L7M’s murals can be explained through the artist’s inspiration for both the beauty and sorrow of all life. This becomes evident in his work through the portrayal of both elegance and coarseness almost. What an amazing talent !
L7M is dedicated to independent work in advertising agencies, exhibitions, workshops and schools. His studio work has been exhibited in both Paris and Dubai whilst throughout the world L7M’s murals can be found in many countries such as France, US, Portugal and of course Brazil.
