My name is Hugo Gonçalves, I am 37
years old and I live in the beautiful island
of São Miguel in the magnificent
archipelago of the Azores (Portugal), in the
middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
I am a certified IT Technician but above all,
I am a true lover of all types of art,
especially visual arts.
I see art as the ultimate form of freedom. First, I started with music, but early on I became interest in visual arts. Totally self-taught and comfortable with new technologies, I first started experimenting with Photoshop and then integrating other Adobe
tools such as Lightroom, InDesign, Illustrator and Premiere, mostly due to professional demands.
I am a self-taught visual artist without any
academic training in art but combining my
perseverance with my desire to learn, I have been
improving my aesthetics with an emphasis on the surreal aspect of visual arts, in its majority,
photomanipulations using Photoshop.
I am constantly looking for inspiration in the work
of artists of the most varied strands, whether
visual arts or other genres. I try to improve and
integrate new techniques in order to be able to
express myself in a more real and complete way
what I have in mind.
