ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Text and images have always been integral to the professional life of Paolo Mariotti, who was born in Brazil in 1968.
In the 1990s, he illustrated and wrote storyboards for short and feature-length films and developed characters for animated films. He joined the creative team of Vapeurs, a communications agency, in 1999 and began illustrating for magazines and advertisements. At the same time, he became a permanent journalist for Vogue Brazil in Paris. After four years as an advertising agency art director, he became a journalist for 24-hour Brazilian news channel Globo News.
Since then, Paulo Mariotti has pursued a dual career as both an illustrator and a journalist. His illustrations for the press were collected in a book published in France in 2012. At the end of 2013, in Brazil, he published his second book, ‘Crônicas Cariocas’, a compilation of drawings of Rio de Janeiro’s architecture and everyday life. In September 2014, his drawings were exhibited at the gallery of the Brazilian Embassy in Brussels – the first installment of a traveling show which has the support of the Brazilian Minister of Foreign Affairs.
