Believing in art as a tool for the propagation and strengthening of his activism, the artist, forest engineer and Afro-Brazilian organic farmer Messias unites his trajectory of militancy, together with traditional populations and ecological farmers in the Amazon and Atlantic Forest of Brazil, with scenic elements brought by the forest and the sea in an abstract exercise of union between playfulness and ecology, to denounce the historic oppression to workers from all of Latin America and current attacks on the environment, democracy and the rights of indigenous and Afro-descendants caused by the recent rise of neo-fascism in Brazil.
