About the Artist
Ernesto Maranje is a Miami based painter and illustrator who discovered his passion for art at the age of 27. His murals use animal imagery to visualize and create narratives about the importance of preserving the environment. Ernesto’s animals emerge from a biodiverse background of colors, flowers and foliage that reminds us of our connection to nature. The need to be reminded of Nature on a large scale is especially important in these times when so much of our direct relationship with living nature all around us has been largely ignored, with concerning consequences.
