BIOGRAPHY

Santídio Pereira

1996, Curral Comprido, Estado do Piauí, Brazil

 

Born in a small village in the countryside of the state of Piaui, Northeastern of Brazil, since childhood Santídio Pereira has demonstrated the aptitude for the arts, through the socio-educational activities of Instituto Acaia. His interest in woodcutting grew and is currently the main support for his artistic research, whose most important feature is the use of several matrices in the same composition, a technique he calls "incision, cut and fitting", which subverts the function of the multiplicity so characteristic of engraving. In this way, the superimposed prints accumulate thick layers of paint in different colors to recreate elements of his personal memory, such as the fauna, flora, people and objects that were part of his contexts. Among his most emblematic works are the birds of the Piaui caatinga and the bromeliads of the Atlantic Rainforest.
