Hi, I am Gabriel Alves. I'm a self-taught artist, born and raised in Brazil.
I’ve been an artist since I was a little kid, and that passion for art has been a driving force in my life.
Professionally, I received a degree in Graphic Design and have specialized in Illustration, Graphic Design, and 2D animation for over 16 years.
Some of my greatest professional achievements have ranged from traditional animation to games
My team and I won the Annecy International Animated Film Festival as the Best Movie and the European Festival of Cinema with the Audience Award in 2013 with the Animated Film "Uma Historia de Amor e Furia" (A Story of Love and Fury).
I created the GA Studio, a studio focused on institutional comics, with the goal of translating technical content in a simple and direct way. In just five short years, I achieved a mark of 25 titles produced and more than 1 million units printed in total, having as clients some of the largest companies in Brazil.
Between 2011 and 2013, my Game Development Studio received prestigious awards, such as Best Art, Best Game, and Best Online Game with the titles Mr. Bree and Jelly Escape.
I was honored with international recognition by IGDA and Animation Guild as an Extraordinary
Illustrator and Game Designer in 2018.
Currently, I'm a Senior Artist at Powerhouse Gaming.
