Mauro Oliveira Colored Pencils Signed Mixed-Media

About

A wonderful creative work of art by the noted artist Mauro Oliveira. it is wired to hang either way. A great unusual and colorful work of art. Biography: Best known for his geometric work done with automobile detailing vinyl tapes, Mauro Oliveira also creates three dimensional wall artworks that resemble floating sculptures, creatively incorporating objects such as color pencils, pens, water color tablets, paper clips, rubber bands, wax, metals or other everyday materials. All his artworks are covered in an immaculate and glossy resin finish. A Brazilian born and mid child of 7 siblings, growing up in extreme poverty, creativity started early at age 10: he took advantage of the free tin piggy banks given by all the banks back then and invited and encouraged other kids to paint them with him in order to sell at a weekend art fair in Sao Paulo: 1000’s were sold. He made it to college and won a student exchange program contest sponsored by the Federal University of Uberlândia, Brazil. He studied Journalism and the Arts and immigrated to the U.S. in 1990. Oliveira, lived half of his life in Brazil and the other half in the USA where he finally settled down in Los Angeles. He lived in 3 states in Brazil and in 3 states in America, having artworks exhibited in every city, including Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Miami, San Francisco, New York, San Diego, Palm Springs and Los Angeles. His greatest influences are Pablo Picasso and Joan Miro. Oliveira studied Journalism and Arts in Brazil and immigrated to the USA in 1990. Having a full circle in his life, he is now a full-time artist and couldn’t be happier. Inspired by nature, colors and geometry, he makes sure that every piece has a story to tell and touches everyone in one way or another. Oliveira likes to believe that he created his own eclectic style, using materials never used before for art. Mauro’s technique is eclectic to say the least. From early works with oil pastel, acrylic paint, pencils, water colors and a few other mediums, he discovered resin and a new whole art world opened up for him. For the past 8 years, most of Oliveira works has a glossy resin finish. Because resin keeps everything together and cemented for life, his work with automobile detailing tape got the assurance it needed to be used on arts. Early this year Oliveira started a series of Pop Icons such as Michael Jackson, Marilyn Monroe, Prince, Elizabeth Taylor and even President Barack Obama. All done with tapes, paint and covered with several layers of resin.
