John Dyer Painting. Spiritual Butterflies, Rio Gregório, Amazon Rainforest, Brazil

New

"The power and beauty of water combined with the energy and spirituality of the tribe have inspired my painting. Spiritual butterflies fly across the rainforest which is painted with energetic brush marks and colours. The river is the source of life for the Yawanawá and this painting is a celebration of their deep connection to the rainforest."

Stunning painting

I am so thrilled with this purchase - the painting brings joy to my whole family every time we see it on our wall (and it’s the first thing we see when we enter our home!). The colours are beautifully vibrant and there’s something new to appreciate each time you look at it. I particularly love John Dyer’s series of travel paintings and the ethos behind his work on the rainforest. I am so grateful to own a piece of this story, thank you.
