Roberto Burle Marx

Meet Brazilian artist Roberto Burle Marx (1909-94). Landscape architect, painter, self-taught botanist, jewelry designer: this man worked hard. (I just love this picture of him)

Safra rooftop garden, San Paulo, 1982

pavement at the Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, 1970

awesome tapestry. I wouldn't mind owning that.

Even his sketches are works of art.
