About the artist
A word from the curator:
I love the concept of this flamboyant chameleon, choosing to hide his identity instead of his presence. He wants everyone to know he's there and looking good, he just doesn't want his name to hit the gossip pages.
Tell us the background of this design.
Actually in this design I was thinking of making something with black and with…Like a sad grayscale chamilion. So, that wasn’t enough to me…I kept thinking until to get the camouflage: of course, they are masters in that! So, what is the most obvious way to camouflage? A disguise. LOL I think it works.
How would you describe your style?
Hmm, I have no style I guess. I always try to make different things, cool things…And I have never get stuck in an unique style. I just do the thing.
If you could collaborate with anyone, who would you pick?
I love to collaborate, but it’s hard to work with another people. I’d pick Lucas Alcantara (tolagunestro.deviantart.com/) or Danilo Kato (www.danilo-kato.com) they’re great.
What historical figure do you most admire?
The firs president from my country Marechal Deodoro da Fonseca…Google it. He had an AWESOME beard! LOL
If you weren't designing shirts, what would you be doing?
Hmm…I have no idea. Probably a farmer like my father :]
Do you prefer treehouses, tents, or forts?
Milk chocolate or white chocolate: which would win the battle?
Milk. Cocoa makes it stronger! And delicious.
What is your favorite t-shirt color?
I never use that, but I love magenta tees.
What has been your favorite vacation or travel experience?
I love to go to my dad’s farm. Peaceful. I have lots of t-shirts ideas in there.
