Denis Freitas - - Centro - Santo André - , Brasil based illustrator

The dynamism of street art meets the grace and nuance of fine art in the exciting illustration work of Brazilian artist Denis Freitas. His powerful, graphical style is completely his own, with strong forms balanced by subtlety and detail, telling his client’s story in an impactful and unique way.
Alongside studying Graphic Design at Anhembi Morumbi University in Sao Paulo, Denis has developed his style through constant drawing, a strong interest in urban art, and by learning about print and production techniques and digital coloring while growing up. He has always looked to broaden his horizons, feeding his muse by researching art history and Latin American traditions, while taking inspiration from creatives such as José Guadalupe Posada and Oswaldo Guayasamin. He’s also influenced by Carl Jung’s philosophies on mysticism and religion.

Approach

Loose sketching and lots of it is where each new work begins. Denis carries on drawing, reducing and refining on paper, then moves across to his computer to finish the key forms and composition. He likes to share sketches and stages with his client so they can see it develop.

Styles

A distinctive graphical style and powerful compositions feature heavily in Denis’s work, with some forms breaking away into the abstract while flowing line work will often soften the background and add interest.

Client list

Denis’s clients include Abril, Condé Nast, SM, UOL, Envisioning.io, Nike and Cleaver Quarterly.
