Thiago Mazza is a talented Brazilian street artist who creates astonishing grand-scale murals inspired by nature. Most of his works include a detailed and vivid depiction of flora and fauna that envelops walls, facades, and sometimes entire buildings.
While his murals might indicate otherwise, Mazza is a self-taught painter. He started painting walls in 2010 after becoming interested in Brazilian graffiti culture. Soon enough, he developed his own style and established himself as a respected member of the country’s street art scene.
Mazza’s reputation also allowed him to create all over the world and participate in a number of art festivals. His works can be seen in countries like Croatia, Russia, Sweden, Mexico, and many others.
In a recent interview, Mazza revealed that his murals and street art style require a lot of preparation. This includes taking trips to the forest in search of inspiration. During those trips, he takes photographs of flora and fauna that he could recreate on a wall.
This process allows Mazza to always have fresh ideas while also resulting in the introduction of unknown and obscure plants to the wider public.
