He draws inspiration mostly, from the rich culture of his surroundings in Brazil. Santiago’s work reflects the vibrant diversity with the use of bold colours and patterns in his art. Colour plays an important part in his paintings. He states “…colour arouses different feelings in people. I ultimately want my work to create feelings of joy.” Another source of inspiration is the illustrator Elfandiary from Indonesia.
