Amazon Rainforest Paintings

Amazonian Tribal Art. Spirit of the Rainforest Amazon Art

Amazon Rainforest art is a new genre of art that the John Dyer Gallery is proud to be highlighting with the Spirit of the Rainforest project with British artist John Dyer and Tribal Amazon Indian artist Nixiwaka Yawanawá. There are similarities to other tribal cultures, such as aboriginal art and painting, but this new genre of Amazon art is less connected to the landscape and more connected to the spiritual world. This is the first project of its kind and the resulting paintings are a unique cultural collaboration between two important artists; John Dyer and Nixiwaka Yawanawá.

Described by Robin Hanbury-Tenison OBE, the president of Survival International, as:

"One of the most important exhibitions of art in recent times, and a new genre of art that will grow into a major new strand of contemporary painting."

John Dyer travelled to the Amazon rainforest to paint with the Yawanawá tribe in 2019. The resulting paintings are a unique insight into the tribal and spiritual world of the Yawanawá and the Amazon art and paintings that resulted are exclusively exhibited by our online gallery. John Dyer is a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society in London and was funded by an expedition grant from Neville Shulman CBE. You can view all the amazing Amazon art, music, blogs and photographs on John Dyer's expedition page on his Last Chance to Paint project site.

Artist John Dyer is the artist in residence for the UK's Eden Project, who have planted the world's largest captive rainforest, and he is also an official artist for the Earth with the USA's Earth Day Network.
