Bio

Roger Monteiro is a graphic artist born by the end of the 70's in Southern Brazil, where he lives and works. Besides a solid career as an art director and graphic designer in the advertising industry, his story with aesthetical research is deeply attached to the digital means which, besides typography, is his natural habitat. Along the last years Roger had his work published to some magazines and exhibited in Brazil, England and Portugal. He’s a doubt enthusiast: he believes whenever he’s one hundred percent convinced about something, he’s not doing his job right. Roger is married to a beautiful Italian-brazilian woman named Olivia and rides an old bike called Lady Luck.
As an artist he’s not specifically bounded to any aesthetical rules. Pureness of the form bores hime. Symmetry makes him sick. Roger is an urban soul therefore he’s used to distill beauty from the very messy yet delicate relations that emerge from chaos. He’s only happy when it’s rough. He feels comfortable in company of the concrete and the asphalt. He sees humanity in the way a skyscraper defies gravity and God just to say: we live, therefore we create. The gray areas between perceiving our own insignificance and our cocky way to invent a misrepresented notion of Life interest him very deeply. He like s everything that's broken, everything that's fake, everything in this jungle fever we call home. Nightmares are just dreams behaving badly. Come bad-dream with him.
