Ricardo Portilho lives and works in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. He studied design in Belo Horizonte and completed his masters degree at the Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam. His research projects take the language of graphic design as a starting point to deal with reality, and to produce work that can take form in various media and contexts. He has been running Entrecampo, a hybrid practice between a micropublishing house and a design studio, since 2015. That year he received the Illy Caffè Grant for the UNIDEE Program at Cittadellarte / Fondazione Pistoletto, Biella. His works have been exhibited at Cidade Gráfica, Itaú Cultural, São Paulo (2014), and the 10th Brazilian Graphic Design Biennial (2013). He has been published in Piseagrama (2015), Abrigo Portátil (2016), and the anthology Masters of Rietveld: Dutch Design Education in the 21st Century(2008).
