|Bio and ideas:
an artist's vision
Welcome to Intangible
This website is an artist's portfolio
and a source of commercial services related both
to Illustration (encompassing graphic design and
visual communication in a broad sense) and native
English-Portuguese Translation services.
However, it is also a website
that actively introduces and encourages some new
concepts to guide the Creative Process: the Evolution-Oriented
Art concept and the New Naturalist
A story you might want to read: Where
it all began
My formal training as an artist began in 1975 but did not include any contact with Naturalist
art in any form as all this is nonexistent as
a career option in my country, Brazil, unless you settle for botanical art for schoolbooks and the like or if you are willing to be a fringe, free-lance artist only. After 3
years of Editorial Illustration and Design training
I called it quits and left, but even this was
hardly enough to get over the basics and the years
that followed saw me doing my very best to fill
in the information gaps in art training, learn
the trade and get myself some half-blind assignments.
Brazil is a great country but
it does have many shortcomings: one is the greatly
overlooked formal training in art one can hope
to get in any school, especially back in 1975.
Another part is related to the assignments and
real-world jobs that you can find after you leave
school. Most of these are limited to what the
current trends dictate and anything out of this
is not really seen as an option, unless if you
are willing to resign yourself to handicraft or
abstract painting such as plastic arts or something.
What my heart desired though was something very
different and I gradually understood that I would
have to create a niche for myself if I wanted
to do anything else but advertising or corporate
art.All this was very unsettling
for a young artist that wanted to do something
else, something meaningful, and make a living.
Normal commercial assignments were the reality
though, as in most countries for a beginner and
for more than two decades I did a little of everything
in Illustration, all the while developing the
foundations of the naturalist art you now see
in this website. iD Studio has been in existence
for 34 years. I hope that means something.
Naturalist Art. This was always
a new idea as far as I was concerned because I
intended to develop design with a spiritual content
and this kind of Illustration would never be to
me the kind you find in animal books, biology
science textbooks or ecological art as we know
it since ecology became a fad in the late seventies.
Hopefully, others would see that too, I thought,
never letting up on some hope that there are people
who can empathize with these feelings.
When you take your time to peruse
this site, you will see the enormous scope to
which these interests are connected and will get
more than a glimpse of what others
have been doing, especially in the powerful fields
of discoveries regarding energies, elemental intelligence
in nature, physics and many other fascinating
parts of life. iD Studio is deeply interested
in Biodynamics in agriculture, Sound wave treatments
for the soil, Communication with the Elemental
Intelligence in nature, True Organic farming and
produce, Radionics, Inner Earth research and Design
applied to all this, just to mention the topmost
So, take your time, send me some feedback if you will and find a way to contribute to a world
in dire need, for the times are more than ripe for all
this to come about (or to a head!) as the moment we live now is
truly unique in the history of this world and
the changes that are coming are for Good. It's
all a matter of what we want to do: to watch idly
and be excluded in the end or to fire up your
soul's potential and get going with whatever it
is we are supposed to do.
If you really do relate to all this, iDStudio will be there for you.
