Ciao ! My name is Diego Bao ( yes, it's my true name )
I have more than 20 years of experience in Illustration and Character Design.
Since child my draw was inspired by Japanese cartoons, the characters of Hanna & Barbera, Walt Disney, and others. My style it's a clear reference to Pop Culture, underground comics and street artists.
Keith Haring, in particular, was a great inspiration for me. Imaginary creatures like funny astronauts, cool dogs, strange dragons and evil bears come alive, first on sketchbooks
and finally in digital artworks which are used to create posters, stickers, clothing, toys design, skateboards, apparel and much more.
My works were exhibited in many events, design books and art galleries both nationally and internationally.
