The colorful, spirited works by the Brazilian artist Mônica Moraes are the answer. Their trademark are colorful umbrella collages.

About the artist

Moraes lives and works in the seaside resort of Ubatuba in Brazil. Located on the north coast of Sao Paulo, the place is known as a surfer's paradise and sailing center. In addition to the numerous beaches, the large town consists of over 80% green forests. These belong to the Serra do Mar State Park, one of the largest surviving rainforest areas in Brazil. Ubatuba is not only an ideal vacation spot, but with its pristine and immense nature it is also a great source of inspiration for artists like Moraes. In her small studio she processes the colorful impressions of flora and fauna, such as certain bird and plant species. In addition, the numerous rainy days are reflected in her paintings, which earned the town the nickname Uba Chuva - chuva, Portuguese for rain.
