Works can be commissioned to your required colors, materials and sizes Order Reference #: FABIOLTD MOFB4 Brazilian artist Mauro Oliveira creates artworks using special automotive detailing tape, acrylic paint, pencils and other creative media, finishing his artworks with several layers of resin for an immaculate and super glossy finish. The exceptionally shiny varnish gives Mauro’s pieces a delightful reflection and a finished look. Many of his geometric pieces are named after specific places and skylines that inspired the artwork. Each artwork is precisely planned out and there is little room for error with his technique, which makes each piece equally stunning. Mauro believes the artist should express their emotions and feelings through art. Each piece should have a beginning, middle and an end, with an individual outlook and interpretation for each observer. “What I might be really trying to do with my art, is to represent the complexity of the inner self in a simple clean way using vivid colors. My only hope is that every piece touches the viewer somehow.” Mauro Oliveira was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil and 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 1930s. He feels that he is living proof that people’s generosity can save lives and make dreams come true. His passion for the United States and art started at age 9 in the orphanage. An American woman, a good Samaritan, visited the orphanage looking to adopt an orphan and Mauro became close with her. However, she ended up adopting his best friend, as she did not want to separate him from his brothers and sisters. Before she left, she told him crying in broken Portuguese that if he stayed out of trouble and studied hard, he too would make it to the U.S. one day. His first art project, age 10, was to paint and decorate the plain tin piggy-banks, that were given out free by the banks and then selling them. He encouraged and supervised the other children to do the same and raised funds for food. He did stay out of trouble, studied hard and surmounted every obstacle on his way, dreaming of making it to America one day. He made it to college with straight A’s and won a student exchange program contest sponsored by the Federal University of Uberlandia, Brazil. He studied Journalism and the Arts and immigrated to the U.S. in 1990. Mauro has worked in several different art media from oil pastels and charcoal sketches to clay sculptures. His greatest influences are Pablo Picasso and the Spanish artist, Joan Miro. Oliveira's artworks have been exhibited throughout the US as well as internationally, most recently in Hong Kong, Los Angeles and New York.
