From the Jequitinhonha Valley region of Brazil. He began in the visual arts in a self-taught way. When he was only 13 years old his contact with different inks started. By doing several experiments he found his artistic identity by making his painting with fabric.
Inspired by popular cultureand participating in FESTIVALE, he realized that through his everyday life, surrounded by folk culture and the spontaneous joy of his people, he could register all the beauty in his world and establish his style. Gildásio's art is based on the diversity and richness of its habitat - the region of the great Jequi - and is eternalized in the history of art.
