The Amazing Illustrations of Daniel Bueno


Daniel Bueno is a very talented illustrator, graphic artist and comics artist from São Paulo. His work deals with geometric shapes, textures, graphic ambiguity and illusion, fantasy and the grotesque. “I try to escape from obvious solutions, and one of the ways of doing it is to deform a inicially redundant element. The use of graphic elements as beings that can have another meaning also takes part in this process.”

He graduated in Architecture and Urbanism from the University of S. Paulo in 2001. Bueno has contributed to more than fifty magazines, to newspapers as Folha de São Paulo and to book publishing companies as Cosac Naify and Companhia das Letras. Daniel got several prizes in Brazil and other countries, as the Bronze prize in 3×3 Annual (USA), and four HQ Mix (Brazil).

Daniel was also the illustrator of two books that got the Jabuti Prize: “Um Garoto chamado Rorbeto” and “O Melhor Time do Mundo”. His animation Into Pieces, created with Guilherme Marcondes, was exhibited in the Ottawa and Annency Festivals, and got Merit in the Prix arts Electronica (Austria). He already took part in the Society of Illustrators of New York Annual (2004, 2005, 2010), 3×3 Directory (2008), 3×3 Annual (2009 and 2010), 200 Best Illustrators Worldwide (2010/2011) and “Illustration Now!”, of Taschen (2009).
