Featured Artist: Denilson
Originating from Florianópolis, Brazil, artist Denilson Silva, describes his work as something that’s still evolving. “I greatly appreciate the dark art style, occult symbolism and tattoo compositions. I think my style would be a mix of all that inspires me. I like to try to put some symbolism to give a mysterious tone to my artworks.”
For Denilson inspiration can strike at anytime which is why he always carries a sketchbook with him, but he tries to keep a routine when creating new work. “A day of creation begins early with coffee and music, it is essential. I review my sketches and choose something that attracts and inspires me to create in that moment. From there, I try to cut myself off from all the rest and enjoy the process!”
Denison tells us it was only three short years ago, at the age of 20 when he realized he could have a career in the art world. Inspired by artists like H.R. Giger and Mark Ryden, Denilson has always loved creating art and lives every day to do what he loves.
