Stichting Amsterdam International Artists

Paulo Ferreira
Can an artist live a happy and contented life but yet realize their true creative potential, or does the old adage that an artist must suffer for his art hold true?
Paulo Rogerio Bastos Ferreira, artist born in Brazil in the early sixties, is a living testament to both sides of the argument.
An extensive traveller, Paulo began making art out of necessity, both in a creative sense and a financial one and has consistently documented his life through his art, working through the turbulent times in life as well as the happy. His work reflects the highs and lows with equal strength and has shaped a remarkable body of work.
