2024 BCBF Visual Identity - Inês Viegas Oliveira
Inês Viegas Oliveira was born in 1995, in Tavira, Portugal.
In an attempt to know everything, she graduated in Physics and after half a master’s degree in mathematics she realised she knew nothing. She then did a postgraduate degree in Illustration at UAL, which made her feel more relaxed.
In 2020 and 2023 she was selected for the Bologna’s Book Fair illustrators exhibition and in 2022 she was a finalist in that same exhibition.
She was part of the European project Every Story Matters, which promotes inclusion through stories and books. Her first book “O Duelo” arised form this project, and in 2022 is published by Planeta Tangerina. “O Duelo” won the National Illustration Award 2023 in Portugal.
Inês moves between science and art, author and reader, image and words, trying to break some boundaries. She continues to ask a lot of questions, but once in a while she stops to write or to draw.
