Biography / MATEUS BAILON

Brazilian artist Mateus Bailon’s work explores narratives that seek to recall the connection between the human being and nature with the main characteristic for his paintings are his fantastic creatures, especially birds. Bailon worked with URBAN NATION in context of the Project M/13, ‘The Monster Project’ and for the ‘Juxtapoz Clubhouse’ event in Miami.

These experiences found its way into his artworks and to the streets, transferring the power of nature to the urban concrete jungle, in the form of fantastic creatures and hybrid animals from Bailon’s mythological universe.

By offering a sensorial experience, Bailon wants to empower the natural world and promote awareness
