AkaCorleone (b. 1985) is a visual artist of Portuguese and Swiss descent who started out as a graffiti writer in the underworld of his native Lisbon. A compulsive drawer, obsessed with all things graphic and visual from an early age, he studied arts, earned a degree in Design and Visual Communication and worked as a graphic designer for a few years, having left the profession to focus on his artistic practice. He is known today for his dexterity in using colours, typography, characters, and refined forms which he blends to achieve eye-catching compositions imbued with originality and an all-pervasive humour. He has been exhibiting his work in solo and group exhibitions since 2010.
