Street Artist Incorporates Flowering Plants Into His Graffiti to Stunning Visual Effect

Fabio Gomes Trindade, a talented Brazilian street artist, creates stunning graffiti masterpieces by combining his detailed portraits with branches of trees and flowering bushes.

Whenever he starts work on a new project, Fabio Gomes Trindade first chooses the location of the artwork. The presence of lunch trees or flowering bushes is critical, as they basically make up about half the artwork. The Brazilian artist uses graffiti to depict the faces and part of the hair of the portraits he creates, letting nature take care of the rest. Seeing the artworks from the perfect angles, they look like a perfect collaborative effort between man and nature.

The artist reportedly came up with the idea for this blend of street art and nature 10 years ago, when he saw an acerola tree planted in the backyard of a humble house in the city. Interestingly, that same tree eventually became part of one of his most popular artworks.

Photos of Fabio’s creations recently went viral on Brazilian social media, and for good reason, as you can see in the images below. His works eventually transcended national borders and received attention from millions of people, including celebrities like actress Viola Davis.

“I am really happy and surprised about the positive reactions to my art, this inspires me to keep doing what I love to do and making a living off it,” Gomes told Travel Noire.
