Rafael Mantesso | Jimmy the Bull TerrierArtist Pick:

"Brazilian artist Rafael Mantesso is way ahead of his time...and the subject of his work, Bull Terrier Jimmy Choo, is intriguing, yet accessible. I love the simplicity of Jimmy's white fur and black nose juxtaposed against the white wall with Mantesso's brilliant pencil drawings."

I can’t wag any harder for Brazilian artist, Rafael Mantesso. Drawing inspiration from his best friend, Bull Terrier, Jimmy Choo, Mantesso creates whimsical cartoons on bare white walls, then poses Jimmy next to them.

Mantesso’s work is the perfect homage to Dogs, Inspiration, and Life…

I love them all, but my favorite piece is the one with Jimmy Choo at the microphone. What’s yours?
