Maykel Nunes


Artist Bio

Maykel Nunes is a Brazilian graphic designer born in 1982. He lived in the U.S. from 5 to 9 years old and started drawing since childhood. Like every kid he watched many cartoons, was a comics collector and believed that Lego was the first discipline to stimulate creativity in his life. Throughout adolescence he pretended to be a journalist, but ended up opting for Graphic Design. During college he was invited by a teacher to work in her agency, where he has worked for seven years as an art director. Six months after graduation he began teaching and continues to teach subjects such as Desktop Publishing, Photography, Editorial Design and Printing Processes.

In March 2009 he received a Moleskine as a gift from a friend coming from Italy and left it stored in his backpack for a long time without knowing what he would do with it. Then he had the idea of rescuing his childhood habit of drawing without compromise, to create without limitations, letting the mind flow and the hand run the traces. After filling a few pages, he decided to publish his work on Flickr and as a differential, he shoots it in scenarios assembled in a makeshift studio, putting together another big hobby, photography. With the power of the web he had his work published on websites and blogs all over the world and was later contacted by the Italian factory and enrolled as a Moleskine Contributor in the website moleskine.com. With the rush of daily life he does not always have time to draw, but his Moleskine art is the best therapy to unlock creativity and release stress.
