Felippe Moraes (born July 9th 1988) is a visual artist, researcher and independent curator born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.[1][2][3] Works with various medias such as sculpture, installation, drawing, painting and photography. [3] His work is developed around revealing hidden patterns written within the universe,[4] relating scientific methodology and spirituality.[2] Currently is a PhD candidate in Contemporary Art at the College of The Arts at the University of Coimbra[5] and holds an MA Fine Art from the University of Northampton.


In 2016 Felippe Moraes constructed his Monument to The Horizon (2016), a large-scale permanent public sculpture placed at Caminho Niemeyer in Niterói.[6][7] The work is a five-meter tall steel tower around a small set of stairs that lead to a strip in the metal, revealing the horizon of Rio de Janeiro on the opposite side of the Guanabara Bay.[6]

In 2017 was artist-in-residence in Tehran, Iran [1] and in Slanic-Moldova, Romania[8][9][10], where he constructed his Monument to Euclid (2017), consisting of eight sandstones in a circle in the woods, and paying homage to the Greek mathematician Euclid.[11] In 2020 he developed the series of photographs Eledá (2020), relating to his spiritual experiences with the orishas.
