"His style combines a vintage look with modern compositions that employ a collage method and digital painting. Because he works as an illustrator, the images he creates present as purposeful, as if they yearn to say something, but what makes his artwork remarkable is Feliciano’s ability to present final images that are seamless and polished." olaj Magazine/CA
"What do you get if you mix a lifetime’s collection of vintage books, magazines, postcards, letters, essays and records sleeves, with the rigid creative process of an architect? Well in Laurindo Feliciano’s case you get a fantastic collection of nostalgic, surrealist illustrations apparently". Jack Daly - FormFiftyFive™/ UK
"Inspired by his own collection of vintage books, magazines, postcards and letters, he has created an impressive amount of beautiful works in the last years. All of his collages and posters share a certain nostalgic flair and a great passion for surrealism." Nini Baseema - Lost at E menor/ AU
"Laurindo produces collages in the spirit and tradition of the Week Goodness by Max Ernst, but with a sense of temporal distance, spatial and cultural even stronger, offering contemporary small enigmas that relates to the question of memory, both individual and collective". Alexandre François - La Blogothèque/ FR
