This futuristic alternate-reality is the brainchild of Diogo Machado (b. 1980), who lives and works in Cascais, Portugal. With a degree in Graphic Design and a few years experience as a Graphic/Screen Designer under his belt, both in Portugal and Germany, he decided to become a full-time visual artist and illustrator. From then on, his funny-looking, peaceful, robot-like creatures and graphics have been appearing a little around the globe in illustrations, paintings, exhibitions, hand-painted walls and objects, designer toys, posters, screen-prints, clothing and a diverse array of media in both private and artistic as well as professional and commercial contexts. His unique, vivid style is fast becoming a recognized hallmark in this current graphic-soaked culture of ours.
