Through fine art and illustration, Rivetti focuses on creating bold, colorful works that are expressive of the artist’s feelings and are heavily inspired by Brazilian culture and biodiversity, the female shape and an overall sense of wonder towards the world through a blend of pop surrealism and fantasy.
