Totonho: The Hand of Man
Stride Arts is pleased to present The Hand of Man, paintings by Brazilian artist Totonho. The exhibition, showing over thirty colorful and meaningful paintings by renowned Brazilian painter Totonho, will be on view from November 21 to December 15, 2019.
Totonho, born Antonio de Araujo Pereira, is a self taught artist from Salvador Bahia, in the northeast of Brazil. He started to paint at a very early age, using soil, plants and coffee to make paint. About fourteen years old, he moved from the countryside to Bahia’s capital Salvador, a huge city with a rich culture. Here he refined his skills, and met other artists. In the eighties he was one of the founders of the Associação dos Artistas Populares do Centro Histórico de Salvador.
