THE RAMAKIEN / BUKRUK BANGKOK 2013

1 2 3 4 buk1 buk2 buk3 buk4 buk5 buk6 buk7 buk8 buk10 buk11 buk12 buk13 buk14 buk15 buk16 buk17

coming back from Bangkok was hard…We had so much fun, met so many cool people, fell in love with the city, but back to reality…

this is the result of 5 days of hard work with a challenging wall, hot like hell temperatures, shaky scaffoldings, 2 kickass sidekicks, and a lot of fun…
inspired by the ramakien legend and the decoration on the budist temples of Bangkok, my mural artwork was a mix of visual references of the legend and my own style…

More or less one month ago i was invited along Kruella and a really nice group of young artists to show some illustrations in Évora, at a beautiful gallery!

some times these shows can be boring because we send some works and sometimes we get pictures of the opening, but that´s it. This time was different, all the artists were invited to come and stay for a few days in this chilled out town in Alentejo, the group was awesome, the organisation was a bunch of nice people and we even had a mascott, the cool cow MU!
the show was super nice, we made new connections, had the chance of showing some less known works and honestly, it felt like mini vacations!

thank you a lot MU guys and thank you fellow artists for the good time!

ps: some of the prints you see from me and Kruella will be available very soon at the STEPPIN STONE shop!

AKACORLEONE x UP!

Last week was the launch of the new VOLKSWAGEN car, the UP! and for that ocasion, it was created a new space, that will have concerts, movie screenings, right in the center of Lisboa ( Av. da Liberdade, right next to cinema S. Jorge) where i have a big illustration featured on the space!
it was an adventure this project, with a tight schedule and lots of characters to do, it took a while to paint this 6×2 m pannel but i was super glad with the end result!

check out the UP! pop up store and the cool events going on for the next month, the car is awesome, so is the space!

thanks again my love Angela for the patience, for struggling with the cold, for helping me on each step of the project and for looking so damn cool with a glass of wine!
by the way, here´s a fun (not so much at the time) fail during the work in progress…somebody forgot to take off the protective layer, we only figured that out at the middle of the process,hahaah!

SHAMELESS Teaser /// AKACORLEONE

In this epic struggle to become a successful illustrator, i´m always looking for the best way to do it without pyramid schemes or selling my soul to satan…
There´s no better way to do it, than being bold and showing new, shiny, cool, crazy works using an ancient shaolin tecnique of SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION!
When times are tough, and when i feel like i´m running against the odds, the only way to live from my passion is to work my ass off and show it proudly to the world, so enjoy and spread the message…

be prepared for the real deal coming soon!

collab work with the new George Lucas, I AM FROM LX!

NEW STUDIO /// CALDAS LATE NIGHT

Open studio during Caldas Late Night…

We are super happy with our new studio at Ateliers nos Silos,we had a open studio day during the Caldas Late night event, crazy turnout, i even got to sign autographs with an audience, hahaha, i was even paid 1€ for a corleone tag!
anyway, it´s always good to share our work with new people, get to hear positive feedback, but mainly what i love is to share my workspace with the most cool and creative girl ever…

new photos from our instalation “STRABUCHA ESTÁS NO CÉU” and from Caldas Late Night coming really soon!
