Wonderful Illustration of Hugo Travanca designed by Heart

 

Hugo Travanca was born in Coimbra in 1981, grew up in Olival (Portugal) where he stayed until finishing high school. He graduated from the Évora University in 2005 with a degree in Fine Arts. In 2006 he graduated from IADE with a Diploma in Communication and Image, in 2012 from the University of Barcelona with Master in Artistic Creation. Since then he has been developing his painting style and presenting his works in solo and group art exhibitions. His work has been focused on painting, illustration of some projects and participation in some exhibitions. From the very early age Hugo tends to create using different kinds of materials, and throughout academic career he specializes and gets inside the Art world more and more. Works are almost like an addiction that absorbs all his energy, twenty-four hours per day. He never sees himself in another area. He merges the personal fulfillment, with the professional achievement and there isn’t difference. He feels very comfortable during the intensive creative process. His work and concepts have been more objective and consistent only because he follows the natural course and keeps on connected with the life that surrounds him and also he follows the intuitive decisions. Hugo works with reusable materials, in painting and illustration he almost always uses the cardboard like a support, because it has a unique plasticity and oil pastels and acrylics on it create something different and understandable.
