Home. ❤️ for artist labo maurício lopes de oliveira (@laboyoung ), it’s the force behind his wearable pieces created from natural materials like leaves and coconut straws.
“my work is how i enhance my black, marajoara and ribeirinha culture,” says labo, who lives in belém do pará in the brazilian amazon.
“it started in my childhood, through games i played with my mom where we built a playful world — creating games and toys from objects we found in our backyard, either foliage or seeds. these memories are with me even today and it’s where i still find inspiration for creation and experimentation.”
