Renan Florindo gets to the heart of the matter on

Renan Florindo from Brazil keeps us thinking of the wild oceans. His Baleia Azul (Blue Whale) is sculpted in curving flight.

Renan added details with paint and mounted the polymer sculpt on a watercolor background. You can watch him add the details on Instagram.

The subject matter for Renan’s art is usually anatomical hearts which he sculpts and draws in incredible detail and unusual settings. I wish I understood more about his focus on hearts but his writing is sparse and the translations from Portuguese don’t help.

This powerful endangered blue whale requires no translation.
