Mel was born and raised in Salvador, Bahia, land of all the saints and yes... He was born an artist. Thus his mother, while was educating him, included in the contents the painting, the drawing, the theory of color. And so from an early age and perhaps due to his mother's creative artistic genes, a career as an artist always seemed destined to materialize.
His graduation in Fine Arts at School of Fine Arts of the Federal University of Bahia, followed by some specializations in education and psychopedagogy, potentialized the themes painted by him.
He has always acted in classrooms teaching courses of product design, fashion, and pedagogy, while building his artistic projects and participating in social and cultural events.
Human and social development are always at the top of his list of priorities, so spirituality and self-knowledge have always been his source of inspiration, and when it comes to these inspirations, his taste for world mysticism associated with that from the city of Salvador creates a kaleidoscope of possibilities for a deeply significant aesthetic experience.
