F E L I P E E N G E R is a Brazilian/Swedish visual artist based in London.

His multicultural background and extensive travels have had a significant influence on his work. Growing up in Brazil, where light is warm, intense and shadows are harsh and; having lived in Sweden and the UK, where light is softer and shadows more subtle, had a notable impact in the way he sees photography. 

 

For him, photography is not just a tool to frame the world around us. It also is a medium that gives shape to abstract concepts such as dreams, the unconscious mind and the idea of belonging. Landscapes, natural geometry and textures are usually the starting point for him to shed light on ideas, and create his world visually.

After graduating from Business school, in São Paulo, Brazil, he realised that photography was more than just a hobby and decided to change his career path. He then moved to London, where he graduated from the London College of Communication, with a Postgraduate Diploma in Photography. Since his graduation, he has been working on personal projects that have been featured on international online magazines. His work has been exhibited in Brazil, the USA, and the UK.
