Son of Amaro Francisco Borges, Severino carries forward the family tradition of working in wood and creating illustrated covers for literatura de cordel and exploring typical Northeast themes in large black and white as well as colored woodblock prints. Cowboys, folk festivals, animals and plants of the backlands as well as local heroes are included in his repertoire of imagery.
