John Dyer

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

"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." John Dyer
