Lúcio Carvalho

Brazilian / B. 1965

Lúcio Carvalho’s works are inspired by scenography, Baroque, Rococo and the Renaissance. The artist paints from emotions from memories and his imagination, combining fragments from the past with his vision of the future. Carvalho is not particularly attached to his medium; he primarily uses paint, photography, and sculpture. His creative process is central to experimentation with mediums, expressing his desires, and materializing his ideas, conveying pleasure and pain. No matter which mediums he uses, all his work is conceived like a painting, layer by layer.

Carvalho has been drawn to art his entire life. As a child, he was timid and would find refuge under a vast banquet table at his grandmother’s house. He would spend hours drawing and coloring there, exhibiting his prized possessions for his eyes only. While his brother and cousins would ride their bikes, run, and play, he only wanted to observe his surroundings while safely protected in his favorite hiding place. For a long time, he felt different, guilty, and confused, and he wondered why he had such a passion for expressing himself and creating. Paralyzed by the fear of being unable to make a living, he waited many years before deciding to follow his passion and make a living as an artist.
