Maria Xilo is a self-taught artist whose quest for knowledge is fueled by her relationship with the Brazilian Northeast. Her passion for nature, people and Northeastern culture is what inspires her to create her works. In addition, the curiosity to explore human feelings is one of the main reasons for their constant search for new learning and experiences.


Maria Xilo believes that her art can change the world and this belief is reflected in her phrase "from the northeast to the world". She understands that her art has the power to transcend geographic and cultural boundaries, and that her message can be appreciated by people all over the world.
