Artist bio

Originating from Brazil, Maico Camilo is a contemporary painter living in Auckland, where he has been working as a professional artist for nearly two decades.

Specialising in acrylics and mixed media, Camilo’s work serves as a reflection of his personal narrative and lived experiences, utilising his platform to challenge the conventional perspectives he perceives. The large scale of Camilo’s work, along with his vibrant and alluring palette, emphasises a sense of immersion in his vision of the world, inviting audiences to delve into a diverse range of visual experiences. Frequently, Camilo will create bodies of work that explore a specific subject that resonates with his lived experiences such as his Internal Saboteur series. Through these works Camilo explores the human habit of self-doubt and judgement, using line and form to capture the impact of our own self-critique, with his figures portraying different emotions and feelings, positive and negative.
