Jorge Carema

Updated: May 27, 2020

Jorge Carema is a Guarani fisherman and farmer who learned to draw by himself. His drawings transpose the beliefs of his people that are part of the oral tradition, allowing us to better understand the identity of the Guarani people and their daily life.

Made in black and white, each drawing is a plot that shows the relationships between the Guarani people, animals, and other beings such as trees. The deforestation of the territory threatens the survival of the Nivaclé, Guaraní, and Yanomami peoples.
