Born in Naiguatá, state of Vargas, 11 November 1920. Feliciano Carvallo spent his childhood in the seashore towns doing farming work. He attends the municipal school until the third grade. His creativity first becomes evident in the design and manufacture of his own toys. He shares his love of painting with Eusebio Pereira, who paints figures of animals, while Carvallo prefers landscapes, flowers and fruits on paper or cardboard.( …)

Francisco Da Antonio has pointed out three stages in his production: the first one, from his beginnings as a painter around 1950, when he uses water-soluble colors and a nervous outline in his drawing. He then starts a series of paintings of folkloric subject until the 1960s, carried out with warm colors, using oil paint and industrial enamels; during this stage, his figures are minimalized to the point of schemes in theatrical spaces which violate the conventions of perspective. Finally, the jungles stage is carried out in dark but brilliant tones, following a scheme of flat, monochromatic backgrounds on which he decoratively orders his forms as colored serpentines.
