Itamar Julião

[Itamar de Pádua Lisboa em Prados]

1959 / 2004, Prados - MG


Itamar Julião [Itamar de Pádua Lisboa em Prados]. In 1959, Itamar de Pádua Lisboa comes into the world in Prados, a small colonial town in the South of Minas Gerais. His first contact with wood came from observing the work of his father, Zezinho de Pádua Lisboa, who created “harness heads” for animals. His first works showed a religious theme. However, he really became famous as an artist with his recreations of animals: birds, monkeys and especially lions. Having a vigorous style and impeccable finish, his “lions” were getting larger and larger, becoming his personalised trademark. He lives on a farm in the rural part of Prados and worked to order, and encouraged several relatives to get developed in the profession. Among these, his brother Antônio stands out most, with an original and creative work portfolio.
