Carlos Bastos (1925-2004)

He was born in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil, October 12, 1925, and died there March 13, 2004 (at the age of 78).

He began painting at age 16. He studied fine arts in Salvador and then in Rio de Janeiro. He also studied art in New York and Paris (1957-1958) He belonged to a group of artists that included Jorge Amado (also from Bahia) (1912-2001), whose books Bastos illustrated, and Mario Cravo Carybe (accent on the last "e"), another well-known Bahian artist (muralist). Their art group had a strong impact on the art scene of the 1940s and 1950s, creating the illusion of sensuality, miscegenation, and Africanness, all still characteristic of Bahian culture. The works of these artists are internationally known. Carlos Bastos was one of the top three muralists of Brazil. His subjects were innocent and playful. He was somewhat influenced by Surrealism. His art was innovative and revolutionized the arts in Brazil.
