About The Leap
2015

When nature teaches you how to fly:
Let your wings grow
Spread them wide
Find your path
Run fast
And take the leap

The tuiuiú is the largest flying bird in Brazil. This photo was shot during Ivan’s first expedition to the Araguaia river (Brazil), back in 2015, where he discovered a new land with expanding agriculture and vibrant life. On that day, a local biologist told him: “when a forest is burnt, we lose a library of life”.
Later on, nature sent a feathered emissary to deliver a message: "don’t be afraid to fly”.

Artfolly donates 10% of each sold artwork of The Leap to the Black Jaguar Foundation (www.black-jaguar.org). The Black Jaguar Foundation pursues one clear objective: planting indigenous trees on a massive scale to help realize the Araguaia Biodiversity Corridor in Brazil in order to improve the lives of each of us and of all future generations on our planet. 

About Ivan Nisida
Ivan Nisida is a Brazilian visual artist whose oeuvre gravitates around Art & Nature. He harvests inspiration and purpose in the contemplation of natural landscapes.

Gorillas in Rwanda. Lions in Uganda. 400km motorbike journey in Vietnam. Trekking trails and boat rides into the Amazon. Volcanos in Ecuador. The landscape is his atelier.

Ivan Nisida is also a writer, mainly devoted to poetic prose. His first book, “Gem", was published in 2018.

Born in 1989, Ivan grew up in São Paulo under the influence of five cultures (Brazilian, French, Swiss, Czech and Japanese). He lived for 3 years in France and travelled over 30 countries around the world - and his camera was always there.

Moreover, Ivan dedicated the past 10 years to the protection of nature. He holds a Master's degree in Environmental Policy (Sciences Po Paris) and works for the Black Jaguar Foundation, an international organization focused on implementing one of the largest reforestation projects on Earth.
