Thiago Furtado is originally from Florianópolis, an brazilian island.
His fascination for coast culture and the costumes of the Portuguese and the Spanish matched perfectly with the graffiti urban culture, which is also rich in content. It was through his street works that his art acquired self expression and an identity.
The ocean is his main source of inspiration, and the feminine figure in his works expresses the beauty and admiration that the artist has for the uncontrollable forces of the ocean.
Vigorous fluid lines set the visual style of these subjects; which always interact in various different urban environments.
This fusion of influences resulted in expressive and authentic works. With spraying techniques derived from graffiti, the artist creates works in great proportions and with an incredible technical and aesthetic detail.
