MEET THE ARTIST
Agostino Moreira de Melo
Agostino Moreira de Melo is from Brazil.
He uses found materials to create beautiful new objects.
These look like spinning tops, but they are made from bottle tops and the plastic lids of containers. Have you ever spun one of these? You have to concentrate other wise it won’t work!
Agnostino is passionate about protecting the environment. He uses his artwork to make us think about who we are.
A mandala is a pattern that many people around the world use to help them focus their mind. A mandala is often round. All mandalas have a central focus point.
Imagine what happens when something falls in water and you watch the ripples spread out on the surface of the water.
Agostino would like us to learn to see things differently and to ask ourselves if we are what we want to be?
