About Patiño

Mickael « Patiño » Brana is a freelance illustrator and artist born in 1990 in Bayonne, France.
He has developed a unique style with two different faces : the illustration side and the fine art side.
His illustrations are funny, fresh and comic. Whereas his art is more melancholic, weird and expressive.
But they are two sides of the same coin. The whole universe of Patiño is a bunch of strange characters, crazy animals and absurd monsters.
He likes to draw with traditional techniques as well as digital, and always keeps experimenting and adding new things into his work.

A propos de Patiño :

Mickael "Patiño" Brana est un illustrateur et artiste français, née en 1990 à Bayonne.
Il a développé un style unique composé de deux différentes facettes : l'illustration et l'art. 
Ses illustrations sont drôles, dynamiques et modernes. Son art quant à lui, est plus mélancolique, étrange et expressif.
Mais ce sont les deux faces de la même pièce. L'univers graphique de Patiño est un mélange de personnages bizarres, d'animaux loufoques et de monstres absurdes.
Il aime aussi bien dessiner à la main que sur ordinateur, et continue d'expérimenter et d'ajouter de nouvelles influences dans son travail.
