Leandro Castelao was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
He studied Graphic Design at the University of Buenos Aires where he has been teaching Typography Design within Enrique Longinotti’s lecture and Illustration at Daniel Roldan's lecture.
His work constantly connects real objects and situations with some personal diagrammatic filter based on his graphic design background. Movies, nature, science fiction reading, traveling and listening to music comprise his daily creative context.
His pieces are composed by a very controlled mixture between simple lines and geometric shapes creating an amazing contrast between synthesis and variety of elements into a single composition.
With commercial and personal projects, Leandro keeps himself constantly busy, working for Nike, Esquire, Computer Arts Magazine, Popular Mechanics, The Times, Wired, GOOD, Ford-Kia, Super Interessante, Royal Mail, GQ among others.
