  • Biography: João Neto is a funny, skinny guy who finds fun in every little thing he stumbles across. Walking along the street he jumps to hang from traffic signs, cracks jokes throughout any conversation and confidently taunts himself. João takes a similar approach in his work, using his illustrations to mock himself and people he meets. Born in Aljezur, south-western Portugal, João began drawing aged nine by observing his mother designing costumes in her spare time. In school he would scribble all over his notebooks and make funny annotations on historical figures in textbooks, finding his voice within the wacky figures. As he grew up next to the sea, the twenty-two-year-old illustrator who goes by the name of Capitão Neto, draws a huge amount of his inspiration from surfing culture, as well as skateboarding. He sketches haphazard, contoured figures in black pencil with a ludicrous style that mirrors his own personality.
