Born in 1980 in the South of São Paulo in Brazil, Adhemas Batista is a self-educated digital artist, now living in the United States with his family and pursuing a creative career in his own studio in Los Angeles. A graphic designer since he was 15, the so-called "colour seller" stands out thanks to his highly colorful and powerful visual style, which has earned him several awards, including a Golden Lion in the Conception category of the 2009 Cannes Festival, and two Golden Statues in the London Festival.
