Dante Horoiwa is a self-taught artist born in São Paulo, Brazil in 1988.

Recently, Horoiwa has exhibited his paintings at the El Centenario Museum in Mexico, with further features in Australia, United States, South and North American galleries, as well as large scale murals on the streets of East and West Europe. He also has recently attended an art residence in Japan.

His work frequently deals with themes closely connected to the foundations of human existence, which are universal to all living beings. Using a placid colour scheme of neutral shades, Horoiwa’s paintings, drawings and murals possess a mysterious, spiritual and soulful tonality. His work delves into the depths of human experience to explore the seen and unseen, using familiar devices such as long hair, textiles, plants and threads to connect the various forms, and evoke our sense of something magical and supernatural.
