David Arantes, born in Porto, lives in Porto. Photographer and musician who has a great eye for color and design naturally found in nature. He reveals its artistic potential by contrasting everyday surroundings with industrial elements and wide range of textures.
Each of Arantes’s images create mysterious and captivating story.
" I use my images to create lies. I like to test new possibilities and provide some confusion, even if very subtle.Every image lives in a closed world and for me there is no direct connection between them.” - Arnantes

André Silva, a young creative from Porto (Portugal).
"Since I was a child I always enjoyed drawing. I also remember that I said several times that I wanted to be an illustrator.
Later, I followed my education and started doing my work as an illustrator for bands and events.
Today I can say that I divide my life between two passions, design and illustration.
I’m currently available to do collaborations with other studios or designers. So, feel free to contact me if you want to work with me!”
"Fernando Pessoa was a Portuguese poet, writer, literary critic, translator, publisher and philosopher, described as one of the most significant literary figures of the 20th century and one of the greatest poets in the Portuguese language."
This project brings together his, not so well known, poems for children through my handmade collages. For more projects visit ANDRÉ SILVA portfolio.
