Hello! I am Bruna Pétalla
I'm a muralist and artist, I like to paint colorful abstract scenes of bold shapes and forms, hoping to dazzle you as you walk by, and help you remember how incredible this world we live in is.
As a Latina artist, I am inspired by my Brazilian roots and the place my art career has blossomed, New Orleans. Growing up both of my parents were artists; but it was not a path I first chose to follow. In Brazil I worked as a marketing strategist for an award-winning advertising agency. I knew I wanted to do more with my creativity and after backpacking across the globe for three years I settled in New Orleans, a place bursting at the seams with creative soul. During lockdown I discovered my power as an artist when I contributed to the “Plywood Project” and spread positive messages through bright, temporary murals on closed down businesses.
Since then I have expanded my practice across cities on permanent large-scale murals, and creating smaller works for local and international brands such as “Winn-Dixie” and “Psycho Bunny”. Though my medium changes, my message stays the same. To inspire joy and celebrate life through creativity.
