3 faces of Brazil

Paula Anacaona, Lucia Hiratsuka, Stéphan Lévy-Kuentz, Mauricio Negro
Discover the contrasting colors of Brazil through three major figures: the writer Jorge Amado, the woman-bandit Maria Bonita, and the famous football player, Pelé !
  • Paula Anacaona Paula Anacaona’s heart lies somewhere between France and Brazil… So she decided to make her job out of this dual culture : first, she became a translator, then she began her own publishing house specializing in Brazilian literature. In Brazil, she takes an interest in the big cities' favelas. She is also impassioned with the region of Nordeste and theopen spaces of the sertão.

  • Lucia Hiratsuka Lucia Hiratsuka was born in a farm, in the countryside. She made her first drawings on the red earth of Brazil, with a piece of wood. Today, she writes and illustrates books for the young in Brazil. 

  • Stéphan Lévy-Kuentz Stéphan Lévy-Kuentz played football a lot in his childhood. He is the author of about fifteen works for the young including a novel, The Night of the Headscratcher. He has also written books on painting and photography, as well as scripts for films on artists such as Marc Chagall, Yves Klein, Alexandre  Calder, Piet Mondrian, Salvador Dalí or the impressionist painters.

  • Mauricio Negro Mauricio Negro is a visual artist and writer. He likes to draw on Brazilian diversity in his work. Having won several prizes, he combines alternative resources with experimental techniques. He has spent several months in Paris and at present lives with his family in São Paulo, Brazil. He loves the sun, nature, the arts and football.
