Luide Araújo was born and raised in the neighborhood of Candeal, Salvador. At the age of 20 he managed to secure work in a gallery owned by the family of the renowned artist, Carybé, where he became a devoted student. Luide has painted over 200 works and participated in seven exhibitions in areas as diverse as Bogotá, Columbia, and the ‘Museu do Ritmo’ and Grande Hotel da Barra in Salvador.

In continuing the exploration of his artistic talents Luide has developed a unique style blending personal life experiences with his vision of the environment in which he lives. His initial works clearly show the influence of his mentor, Carybé, especially in relation to their themes and the naive style. Luide’s bairro, Candeal, features regularly in his paintings where its most famous resident, the musician Carlinhos Brown, often makes a cameo appearance.

More recently Luide has been delving into his relationship with the afro-brazilian religion, Candomblé, producing works in the Yorubá tradition, reflecting the diverse personalities of the Orixás (Candomblé divinities) as well as the spirituality they bring to our daily lives. The motive for creating such art stems partly from reverence but also, for Luide, a personal exploration where the paintings serve to educate and indeed share something that Candomble gives to all of us – a sense of unity with mother nature. The message is that we need to be respectful, but at the same time we should enjoy the marvels omnipresent in the natural world.

In spite of the strong decorative quality of Luide’s work he manages to avoid the superficiality that often accompanies the decorative. His art is distinctive and shuns complexity, yet it remains profound in its simplicity, seducing us and inviting us to open up our imagination. Luide is at pains to point out that producing this work is not an easy process – it involves creating and recreating, pursuing the essence of the image he is attempting to convey.

  1. Greetings from Ohio! I’m bored at work so I decided to check out your site on my iphone
    during lunch break. I really like the information you provide here
    and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.
    I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my phone ..

    I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways,
    wonderful site!

  2. It is perfect time to make some plans for the future and it’s
    time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you some
    interesting things or advice. Maybe you could
    write next articles referring to this article. I wish to read more things
    about it!

  3. Heya i am for the first time here. I came across this board and I find It truly useful
    & it helped me out a lot. I hope to give something back and aid others
    like you helped me.

  4. I think everything typed made a bunch of sense. However, consider
    this, what if you composed a catchier title? I ain’t saying your information is not good, but suppose you added a headline to maybe grab
    a person’s attention? I mean Bahia by Luide Araujo – October Gallery is a little boring.

    You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create article
    headlines to grab people to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a related picture or
    two to grab readers excited about what you’ve got
    to say. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more interesting.
