Fatinha Ramos is a Antwerp-based illustrator and visual artist originally from Portugal.
After her graduation as a graphic designer in Porto, she moved to Belgium. That's where she started her professional career as an art director in advertisement agencies. Working for national campaigns, she developed a strong capacity to analyse and visualise abstract concepts. Twelve years later, she made a switch on her carrer in order to follow the old dream of becoming a full-time illustrator, and to work on different artistic projects.
Open-minded and full of creative somersaults, she tears down all the classic conventions avoiding the dangerous pitfalls of clichés. Instead, she takes us on a journey through her poetic imaginary world of singular textures and rich color pallet. Her strong conceptual illustrations and her surreal compositions create an emotive, fascinating and unique universe.
Answering the call from several international magazines, she has opened the door to her fantasy realm. Fatinha has worked her magic on books, covers, posters, press articles, advertising, animation, children’s and pedagogical illustrations and diverse personal projects.
Fatinha´s work has been recognised by the Society of Illustrators NY, Society of Illustrators LA, 3x3 The Magazine Of Contemporary Illustration, Creative Quarterly, Lürzers Archive 200 Best Illustrators worldwide, Global Illustration Award; Nami Concours, etc.
