Who is Murah Lemos?

by Anthony Frattin

A person cannot learn how to become an artist. A person is either born an artist or they are not. Brazilian Artist Murah Lemos exemplifies being a truly born artist. His father was a very successful artist and taught the family business to his son little Murah. As a small child soon as he could hold a paintbrush his chores were to finish his father's paintings.

He grew up with many other artists people around him giving their comments and occasional insults as he was painting. "Growing up, and being told my work was no good was something normal for me, I became used to this." Well now he is all grown up and painting in front of a different audience than he is used to.

He utilizes a variety of techniques in his artwork, he works on canvas and paper. His work depicts different peoples' struggle with cultural, political, social and economic disadvantage.
