"Engraved Landscapes" on Wood
These wood engraved artworks are part of a 6-piece limited edition series I've recently produced. The original artwork for each image is created digitally and later engraved with a laser on an untreated solid block of maple.

The dimensions of each artwork are 11.25 x 11.25 x 0.75 inches. Each artwork had an edition of 10, which was individually signed and numbered. If you are interested in getting updates on future artwork that will be posted here, please subscribe to my Twitter.

The artworks above are in the following order:

"22620" Barra da Tijuca BUY IT HERE
The title of this piece refers to the zip code of my neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Each of the forthcoming artworks will be inspired by a different location which I have been to and have influenced me in some shape or form. This particular one depicts in an iconic way the beaches and mountains near my home, while also graphically representing some personal aspirations and goals.

"85852" Iguaçú Falls BUY IT HERE
I created this image based on an experience I had during my childhood. During a trip to visit the Iguaçú Falls in the border of Brazil & Paraguai, my family and I drove through what felt like millions and millions of yellow and white butterflies. It's really beautiful memory that stayed with me through life, so I tried to express that experience in this art piece.

"88310" New Mexico BUY IT HERE
This image was inspired by the White Sands National Park in the State of New Mexico where I traveled to in the summer of 2006. However, different aspects of the image were borrowed from other great experiences I had in impressive ever changing landscape of the area.

"97141" Tillamook Forest BUY IT HERE
This image was inspired by an area of Tillamook Forest, Oregon where I usually pick chanterelle mushrooms in the fall. The shapes at the top of the image represent the often cloudy weather of the region. The long shape at the bottom is the path through the trees seen here as heptagon shaped towers.
