Paul Cupido’s work is concerned with and reflects upon the quest for inner peace, in the knowledge that quiet resignation is usually followed by renewed turmoil. From inside life’s paradoxes, Cupido searches for beauty in the transient. Interwoven processes of searching and making constitute his versatile approach to photography and other media. In 2017, Cupido graduated cum laude from the Fotoacademie Amsterdam (BA) with the first installment of his ongoing multimedia project Searching for Mu. He was awarded an artist-in-residence at the Belfast Photo Festival 2017 and the Hariban Juror’s Choice in Japan. GUP Magazine included his work in New Dutch Talent 2018. Cupido’s work has been exhibited at Haute Photographie (Rotterdam and Stockholm), Foam (Amsterdam), Athens Photo Festival 2018, Festival Internacional de Fotografia (Paraty), and Encontros da Imagem (Finalist Discovery Awards, Braga). Summer 2018 he continued working on Searching for Mu in residency in the Brazilian Amazon.
