Talita Hoffmann is one seriously talented young lady. Her paintings are totally tripped out and wacky, but entirely beautiful all at the same time.
She was born in Porto Alegre (south of Rio, Brazil) and now lives in Sao Paulo, where she pumps out triumph after triumph after surreal triumph. Surreal because her recurring motifs and themes include skulls, electricity towers, foetuses, fires, and a bunch of mutants that are totally morphed – a little bit animal, a little bit human and a lot alien.
Hoffmann blends organic and geometric shapes, natural colour tones with neon, and dark with light; which make her imagery part dream, part nightmare. But even for the semi-sinister undertones, her paintings are gorgeous.
