Luise Eru was born in 1998 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
He is an outsider artist. Eru began to explore digital art in 2019, when he created his first digital collages. Since then his artistic career took off very quickly. He produced the cover album for the famous Brazilian rapper Mac Júlia and the cover album for the only solo album of musician Marquim D’Morais. Eru already exhibited his work in various international venues, including at Doncaster Art Fair (England), the Other Art Fair (Chicago), AP Global (New York), Areanoir (London), White Paper Magazine online exhibition (Spain) and Derfner Judaica Museum in the Bronx, New York.
“I romanticize moments in life, personal discoveries that shape my personality and how they travel in images which I create in my own way.”
All his work is produced digitally. Eru first started working digitally because of the lack of resources to buy art materials. He needed an avenue to express his creativity and feelings. According to the artist, they come from a necessity of more freedom and beauty in the world. The abstract part of his work is composed with figurative elements transformed into dream-like images. “I am fighting for everything that has already been denied to me, just because I did not have the same opportunities as other younger people - who now can choose to become artists, without challenging their survival”
Eru creates an aesthetic narrative that contains something personal not just for him, but also for the viewer. His recent works depict mostly the political and social reality of black people - like him.
