Rafael Silveira started doing comics in the late 80’s. After being published in the pages of independent publications all over the country, his work was published by the American Dark Horse. In 2000, his interests turned to illustration and could be seen in several magazines and advertising campaigns in Brazil and Europe.
Silveira has won the Max Feffer design award (three times), Abril de Jornalismo Award, Silver in the International Advertising Festival of Gramado, Archive magazine, ParanÃ¡ Creation Club, among others.
In 2004, motivated by the editor of the American magazine Blab!, he made up his mind and started to paint with oil.
Today Silveira’s paintings are hanging on the walls of galleries in major Brazilian cities as well as the US and Europe. Two books have been published in Brazil featuring the best of his work: ‘Women, Flying Hats
and Other Cool Things” and ‘Pop Surreal” .
