But the people of Brazil, a diverse population with unique customs and traditions, are the cornerstone. “I love the diversity we have here,” Finok says. “If Brazil is a multiracial country, then São Paulo is the epicenter of culture, race, and everything.” In his murals and paintings, costumed characters sing, dance, and pray as the artist blends Brazilian folk culture with his own unique vision.

Interview for Bizarre Magazine

Another day, another vision of world, another life, another you. We change from our perspective of us. Everyday there is something new that distract us, but in the base of everything, there is something that always bring us back to the same point it all started. It's call it love and respect. And this is what we feel about the artworks of FINOK. Change your perspectives to something good.
