Born in Rio de Janeiro, Carlos Meira’s artistic endeavour began when he joined the printmaking course at the School of Fine Arts at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro.
In early 1990, Carlos moved to Portugal where he developed his unique style of paper sculpture. He returned to Brazil in 1996 and settled in Florianopolis where he further strengthened his illustration side. He has held six solo exhibitions and illustrated several books since then.
Carlos Meira has now devoted himself to illustration and paper sculpture having worked as an artist, designer and art director within the advertising industry. He also runs his blog where you can catch-up on his latest work.
