Tiago Araújo (1991) Born and raised in Porto, Portugal, I work as a freelance

illustrator, animation filmmaker and visual artist. I have had since early on a deep love

and dedication to the Arts and a particular fascination for storytelling. I took my

undergraduation in Multimedia - Fine Arts in the Faculty of Fine Arts in the University

of Porto. I was also enrolled in the Erasmus program between 2012/2013 in Sheffield

Hallam University (Sheffield, United Kingdom) where I had the opportunity to study

Games Design. For several years I also worked as a freelance Illustrator and Independent

Comic-Book author, having participated in various international collective exhibitions and

comics anthologies. In 2015, I thought it was time to move from static image into moving

image, which motivated me to direct my first animated short-film “Patrioska”. The film

was part of the official selection of more than 60 film festivals worldwide, being part of the

panel “Twisted Minds, Troubled Souls” at Dotdotdot Kurzfilm Festival (Wien, Austria)

alongside Nicolas Mahler, Stefan Stratil and Pedro Rivero and screened in major festivals

like Animafest Zagreb and Landshut Kurzfilm Festival.
