Instructor: Rogerio Lupo

Rogerio Lupo
Rogério Lupo was born in São Paulo, Brazil, where he graduated as a biologist and studied classical art in the 1990s. Inspired by the traditional techniques of scientific illustration found in ancient and contemporary books, he sought to learn and research about the employment of several media like graphite, pen nib and ink, watercolors, acrylics, colored pencils, pastels and scratchboard.

He has been working on commissions from the scientific community and teaching biological illustration since 1998. In 2019, he toured throughout some states and cities in the USA, teaching a series of lectures and workshops on graphite and pen nib and ink applied to biological illustrations. Among some of his awards, he won twice the first prize for the Margaret Mee National Contest of Botanical Illustrations (Brazil) in 2002 and 2003, and also twice the first prize for the Margaret Flockton Award for Excellence in Botanical Illustration (Australia), in 2010 and 2013. In this same contest, he won second prize in 2021, and the "highly commended" prize in 2006, 2010 and 2017.
