Paulo was born in Bahia, lived in Sao Paulo and Paris but has always lived emotionally in Rio, one of the main subjects of his work. Text and image have always been very relevant in his professional life. In the 90’s he writes story boards for short movies. After that he starts illustration for editorials and advertising having worked for several brands like Plaza Athénée, Honda, Le Jardim d’Acclimatation as well as important publications such as Vogue Japan, Vogue Portugal, Ideat, Air France Madame, Elle France. In parallel, already living in Paris, he becomes correspondent of Vogue Brasil as a journalist. Recently he is also correspondent for Globo TV channel. In his more artistic endeavours Paulo likes to portray places with which he has built an emotional relationship, reconstructing scenes from delicate details. In his drawing, the tiniest details are observed and transformed into unassuming records in a very elegant, pure and delicate trace. In his more recognizable pieces he uses a blue ballpoint pen over canson paper, reminiscent of the tiles that used to colour the colonial facades in Brazilian cities.
