Please can you say a little about yourself and your art?

I was born in Iquitos and now live in Moyobamba. I’m an environmental engineer by profession and an artist.

I have painted murals for the past 4 years.   All over Peru such as, Cusco, Tarapoto, Rioja, Iquitos, Moyobamba, etc.

My style is realism, with an environmental message.  I love to paint people and their characters.

Why is it important to make murals in the Amazon?

Mural art with a message of conservation and the problems that exists.   Has no greater platform than a public place, where these great natural resources exist.

What is your intention with your works in general?

Lately I am portraying characters that identify the towns and cities.  Who bring with them a great personal message.

Please can you say a little about yourself and your art?

I am a cultural manager and representative of our Peruvian Amazon.  Graduated from the Superior School of Artistic Training (Bagua – Amazonas) with a specialty in Fine Arts.

I paint the Amazon forest showing the mysticism and magic that exists. Representing the anthropomorphizing spirit of nature.

What is the legend / myth that you are going to paint during Festival Patrona?

El Yacuruna – “Yacu” = water or river, “Runa” = man or people. It is the most important magical spirit of the low forest. He commands all the animals and geniuses of water and is often invoked by shamans and healers, in ayahuasca sessions.   Both to do good and to do evil. They say that he moves through the rivers and streams.

What is your intention with your works in general?

To make known the wealth of our Amazon – Both in; flora, fauna, stories, legends and myths. For this reason we must protect it.

Please can you say a little about yourself and your art?

Well as for my studio painting, I usually paint my visions.   Visions that are not only given by master plants, but in general.   Normally I receive visions at any moment.   As for mural painting, I try to work a little more with social themes and to beautify the space.

What is the legend / myth that you are going to paint during ‘Ojo Amazonico’ Festival Patrona?

I will paint an image, a series that I have been working on called “Blessings.” That consists of the Great Mother, life giving and with her blessings. The series is composed of 5 different images, each representing a part of Great Mother.  Each one representing an element; Water, Air, Earth Fire and Ether. In the case of the mural to be painted in the Festival, it will be the Earth Element, which will be represented by Sachamama.   I will use elements that revolve around the idea of ​​the mountain and its strength.

Why is it important to make murals in the jungle?

To create awareness of what surrounds us, beautify the space and generate more tourist attraction.

Trina Lerner Brammah – Elementos: Tierra – festival San Roque De Cumbaza

Please can you say a little about yourself and your art?

I have lived in San Roque De Cumbaza for the past 10 years – of UK origin.   Founder of ‘Sachaqa Centro De Arte’ together with my husband Daniel Lerner.  My paintings are usually images of visions and a relationship with spirit world.  Collecting my own pigments, grinding them and combined with a synthetic binder applied to canvas.

What is your intention with your works in general?

To share the magic and beauty hiding behind the surface of reality.  So that we can learn as a human race to connect with nature through seeing it as a living breathing soul.   Much more than just plants reaching to the sun.  But a living spirit entwined, like a vine.  Not just physical reality to be destroyed.  But a part of God.   We must remember how to heal and communicate with this living spirit, living in the rainforest, in the woods, in the rivers –  in nature.
