Interview with Leandro Lima

Mar 21 2013, 12:30 pm 0 Luciana Santos

The work of the brazilian Leandro Lima is characterized by his soft lines, almost fairytale, made of pastel colors combined with pattern creating complex shapes but also simple ones. Although young, he has already worked for several graphic design magazines and international events.
As he explained to me during an exclusive interview a few months ago, as a child he drew and had a passion for making artistic creations with different materials and mixed media, such as charcoal, watercolors, drawings and even sand sculptures. He considers himself lucky to live till the age of 10 on a farm in Bahia, northeastern Brazil, and to be in close contact with the biodiversity of the Atlantic Forest. Contact with nature, according to him, was very important in forming his personality: all these visual and sensitive references, still applies to his works. He told me that his work experience in visual communication began in 2005 in Sao Paulo, when he worked as a web designer in an advertising agency. There he had his first contact with different softwares like Photoshop and Flash and he began to build his background in digital art. He likes to remember that it was a period in which digital art was fast growing and several Brazilian artists did original work of high quality. A period in which artists, illustrators and also the studies of digital art were his main source of inspiration, helping him to make his work more perfect until today.
