Our March Unblurred showcase features the detailed illustrations of Felipe Delfino. This exhibition contains illustrations of specimens collected from Garfield, Friendship, Bloomfield, East Liberty and Highland Park. All specimens depicted were collected in field trips in the respective neighborhoods. Although the primary focus is on native plants, non-native house and yard plants are also depicted, since they are culturally present.
About the Artist:
Felipe started his career as an artist working with architectonic drafting in Goiania, Brazil, and then moved to Pelotas, Brazil to study visual arts with a major in education at UFPel. After enrolling in a certificate program of botanical illustration at Phipps, Felipe’s artistic practice focuses more on scientific drawings of flora and fauna. Graphite and pen and ink are his primary mediums, and his technique concentrates on the small details.
