Originating from the urban heart of São Paulo, Negritoo explores dreams, thoughts, and desires - inspired by the female references that have influenced him since childhood – as well as his ancestry - highlighting the beauty and complexity of Afro-Brazilian heritage.
Graduated in Industrial Design from Mackenzie University and holding a postgraduate degree in graphic design from SENAC University, he began his career as a designer and illustrator, incorporating his technical skills and composition into his works.
His playful and original strokes, filled with pop culture references and unique figurative images, establish an almost instant connection with the audience. This has led to partnerships with major global brands such as Marvel, Disney, Carrefour, Amazon, among others.
Over the past years, Negritoo has broadened his palette by joining the street art movement. Through overlays of textures, strokes, and colors, he reveals movement and a vibrant narrative, always in search of unconventional canvases capable of housing his artistic expression and creating a multi-channel dynamic between media and surfaces. Continuously enriching his repertoire, Negritoo incorporates references from daily life and his Afro-descendant cultural background into his creations and projects, becoming a multidisciplinary artist, without losing his essence and distinctive style.
