In 2020 after reading about the life of Brazilian Actor, tribesman and storyteller Antonio Bolivar Salvador, I was inspired to create these paintings. His obituary appeared in March 2020 “when he spoke of the Jaguar, lord of the forest, the embodiment of power strength and violence, he would begin to growl deep in his throat. Antonio’s head would move around warily as if he were on the prowl himself. When he mentioned Anaconda the great snake god his hands would slither, swim and twine round each other, getting faster, until still smiling-he might leap from his chair and fling his snake arms around whoever was listening to him.” Extract: The Economist May 30th
