Born in Santa Inês (MA) and resident in Alto Alegre do Pindaré (MA), Carlos is a self-taught artist from Maranhão, who has been exploring different art languages for over 30 years, ranging from serigraphy to oil painting on canvas. He currently works as a graphic designer and holds the position of Secretary of Culture in the city.
Although he has been away from art for a few years, he saw in the Arte-em-Cores project an opportunity to take up his artistic production again. And that´s how his painting Iniciação (Initiation) shown here was born, whose title celebrates his arrival in the world of urban arts, a world so new and unknown to the artist despite his long experience in other art languages.
