Taking inspiration from deep in the Amazon, Sérgio J. Matos crafts decor and furniture design that is backed by a powerful mission statement.
The modern artist chose to live in the country that he was born, and to work with local artisans in the northeastern state of Paraíba to craft his incredible furniture design. Now after nearly two decades, Matos is opening his first studio for his art furniture is São Paulo.
“Anyone who leaves any state in Brazil and goes to the northeast, ends up discovering a new world.”Matos says.
Creating modern furniture that looks extremely playful wasn’t always his plan. Born in a small city in Brazil, the artist spent his childhood building toys with his sister, years later earned a degree in advertising and marketing, but found himself to be a lover of furniture design and immediately started his studies in that modern design area.
His use for vivid colors reminisce the tribes and indigenous roots of Brazil and the country’s cultures and it’s absolutely great that he is paying homage to it through his modern art creations.
