Floating houses on Amazon river

Frankfurt am Main, 2014

By Arturo Laime



This painting reflects some of my experiences in the Amazon rainforest. I expended remarkable times visiting the small villages in the shores of the amazon river. Once a year the Amazonas floods the rivershores up to 8 meters. The people in this places use to build their houses entirely with wood, and some of this houses actually floats in the waters. With strong brushstrokes and with a technique that mixes acrylic with oil pastels, this painting shows the strength and power of the Amazonas and their population.
