Fatinha Ramos is a Antwerp-based illustrator and visual artist originally from Portugal. After her graduation as a graphic designer in Porto, she moved to Belgium. Twelve years later after working in art direction and design, she made a switch on her carrer following the old dream of becoming a full-time illustrator, and to work on different artistic projects.
Open-minded and full of creative somersaults, she tears down all the classic conventions avoiding the dangerous pitfalls of clichés. Instead, she takes us on a journey through her poetic imaginary world of singular textures and rich color pallet. Her strong conceptual illustrations and her surreal compositions create an emotive, fascinating and unique universe.
Answering the call from several international magazines, she has opened the door to her fantasy realm. Fatinha has worked her magic on children’s books, covers, posters, editorial, advertising, fashion, animation and diverse personal projects.
Her work has been internationally recognized: by the Society of Illustrators NY, Creative Quarterly, 3x3 (Magazine of Contemporary Illustration), Communication Arts, Global Illustration Award, Nami Concours...etc
