Working primarily in painting and drawing, Fernanda Mello reinterprets folkloric culture she learned as a child growing up in Brazil. A self-taught artist, Mello derives her artistic inspiration from her studies of South American tribes and shamans of the Amazon region. In Mirror’s Inhabitants, she catalogs the life of Davi Kopenawa, an important indigenous shaman from Brazil who advocated for rainforest conservation and indigenous rights in light of the arrival of gold miners and their diseases in his region.

Fernanda Mello has exhibited at Greenpoint Gallery, Brooklyn; the Fort Tilden National Recreation Area; the Regents Canal Festival and The Brick Lane Gallery, both in London; Grand Palais, Paris; Galeria Olho d’Agua, Brasilia; and FilaAC, São Paulo. She is the recipient of an award from the National Endowment for the Arts and currently resides in Brooklyn.
