Mateus Bailon

Realising that people who live and work in the concrete jungles lost their contact and connection with nature, Brazilian street artist Mateus Bailon decided to bring it into the cities. His vibrant and colorful murals featuring birds, plants, and fishes, have been popping up around Brazil and beyond for the past several years.

Mateus Bailon is renowned for his creative, colorful approach. Self-taught, the artist creates vibrant, detailed pieces that beautify the urban environment and burst with energy. In the today’s busy world in which life became so fast, so busy, and so pressured, Bailon’s outstanding murals remind us that we should slow down, stop rushing, and enjoy life and all the beauties it brings.
