Matheus Lopes is an illustrator/designer from Brazil who embraces mixed media and digital techniques to create vibrant artworks. What inspires me the most about him is the way he connects nature to mankind, such as in Unlimited Thought, which shows a child drawing on the pavement with an unrealistically big quill and butterflies coming out of its feather. The idea behind the piece is that, just like children, we should also encourage our imaginations to fly.
