ABOUT ME:



Bio:



Carlos Araujo is an illustrator currently based in Brazil.

After years successfully working as a graphic designer, he decided to focus his career on illustration.

And since then wonderful things happened.





Today you can find his illustrations in books, magazines, album covers, toys, art shows, posters and other products worldwide.

His illustration style uses silhouettes and high contrasted figures with a modern and whimsical approach. A lot of his illustrations look like a scene captured from an animated movie like they are a part of a larger story or from the same builded world. And instead of saying "style" he prefers the technical term "my way".

Carlos Araujo's artwork was selected to be part of American Illustration, Creative Quarterly, 3x3 Pro Show. In 2008 his portfolio was featured in the pages of Ilustrar Magazine, the most important publication about illustration in Brazil. His work was deemed "Fresh" by Communication Arts in 2010. Two years later, Carlos Araujo was one of the 12 illustrators invited to represent Brazilian illustration at "Impredecible Gráfica Brasileña" art show, in Bogota, Colombia. He was also included - twice - in the Luerzer's Special 200 Best Illustrators Worldwide.





In 2013 Carlos Araujo's work was spotlighted in the 3x3 Magazine, the leading magazine in contemporary illustration. Also in the same year, Carlos Araujo was one of the 29 illustrators selected into the Latin American Ilustración 2: A collection representing the best images from Latin America. And he was also picked to be part of the Los Diez, a special traveling exhibition that visited Colombia and the U.S.

Last year, Carlos Araujo’s illustrations were included in the American Illustration 33 and 3x3 Directory of Illustration. He also was part of the art show/book “Bikefriendly Imagination” in Argentina and Colombia. Created illustrations for the first volumes of two hit book series in Brazil: “Samba and Bossa Nova” and “The Carrapatosos”.

And also in 2014 Carlos Araujo was included - for the third time - to be part of the Luerzer’s Special 200 Best Illustrators Worldwide with no less than seven selected illustrations: Works done for several clients such as Ática Publishing House, Schizzibooks, Mol Publishing, Salamandra and Strange Kids Club).
