Up and coming Brazilian illustrator Wagner Pinto is an up and coming graphic design who exhibited at Brazil Illustrated during the London Design Festival.
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.
