Born in Brazil, Adriano started drawing in school. He quickly realized that the sketches and doodles in his notebooks were more than ordinary. The rest is history; Adriano moved to America and continued to make art that was as different as possible from was already out there.
In 2012, while Adriano was between jobs outside of the creative field, he decided to make the leap and start adrianoINK as his full-time profession.
One of his main goals being to stir the imagination of others, and inspire them. Inspiration and influence for this work is drawn greatly from music and a dark sense of humor.
adrianoINK illustrations are mainly created with copic, Sharpie and ink pens on paper. To order a limited edition reproduction of any of his pieces or apparel, visit our online store, www.adrianoink.com
