|Pinstripe style Fine Art.
Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Mauro was raised on the outskirts under extreme poverty, with no running water or electricity. He and his six siblings were sent to a military state run orphanage after both parents passed away in their 30’s. He feels he is living proof that people’s generosity can save lives and make dreams come true.
Mauro has worked in several different art modalities from oil pastels, charcoal sketches to clay sculptures. His greatest influences are Pablo Picasso and the Spanish artist Joan Miro.
Previous work include his “I love the USA” trademark created in New York City after he lived through the horror of the September 11th attacks and the months following. “This is my tribute to America, she has given me so much.”
He believes the artist should express their emotions and feelings through art. Each piece should have a beginning, a middle and an end, with an individual outlook and interpretation for each observer. “What I might be really trying to do is represent the complexity of the sinner self in a simple clean way using vivid colors.”
