Highraff was born in Sao Paulo, 1977. His first exposure to painting was graffiti. Using organic forms rendered with a very hallucinatory quality, Highraff builds his forms with a high degree of precision, although there is also a certain element of improvisation in his work.
Highraff’s colours and shapes are derived from various sources of inspiration, although he has a special fondness for comics and animation. Other influences include Moebius, Gaudi, and Escher. Highraff describes his work best when says, “imagine all of these artistic styles together in a psychedelic rave party.”
