Mauro Oliveira was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil and raised on the outskirts under extreme poverty. 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.
Mauro 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. He is inspired by locations; many of his geometric pieces are named after specific places and skylines that inspired the artwork.
