He is one of the most notoriously talented designers that was born and raised in south Brazil, where he still lives.

So influence of street art, vinyl album covers, comics, cheap tabloid newspapers, exploitation movies, historic cultural movements, cartoons, outsider artists and pop music is an amazing mash up itself just like his art is.
He is fascinated with the pop culture of 70's, 80's and 90's because of it's visuality and the imperfection of the early creation process.
