About the Ebook
Embedded in his art is history, emotion, spirituality and personal passion. Brazilian-American artist (b. 1981, Brasilia), Jônatas Chimen Dias DaSilva-Benayon, or simply 'Jonatas', is a Symbolist artist whose influences stem from Sequential Art, Baroque, and Modernism. His classical use of archetypes follow the lines of psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung, and mythologist Joseph Campbell. Bold figures and carefully chosen subjects situated against contrasting backgrounds appear to glow and rise from the canvas. His message of embracing one’s cultural identity and disclosing personal beliefs with pride is a recurring theme in his work. Though elegantly quiet, Jonatas' message always speaks his mantra—live your life, be who you are.
