Wagner Pinto is an Up-And-Coming Brazilian Illustrator
His artwork plays on themes of religion, faith and folklore, with a particular emphasis on combining religious influences from across South America, including candombe, a fusion of Catholicism and African traditions.
His work has been recently featured in the October edition of Wallpaper magazine.
Implications - Religious artwork has become more interpreted rather than literal. This is because the person is tapping into their religious feelings and depicting it through their work as a way of sharing and spreading the word of their religious choices and experiences to mass audiences.
