Renato Moriconi (Toboão da Serra, 1980) is a visual artist with a degree in Fine Arts from FPA - Faculdade Paulista de Artes, and who received his Masters degree in Graphic Design from the Maria Antonia Center University - USP (CEUMA-USP). As an illustrator and/or author, he has published more than 40 books in Mexico, France, China, South Korea, Italy and Brazil, where he has won countless prizes, such as the best editorial illustration prize in the 13th International Porto Alegre Editorial Drawing Salon and “best children’s book prize”, from FNLIJ - the National Children’s and Youth’s Book Foundation. The book “Telefone sem fio” (edited by Companhia das Letrinhas, 2011), the result of an authorial partnership between him and writer Ilan Brenman, entirely illustrated by Renato, won the “best image book” prize of the year, also from FNLIJ. Some of the originals painted for the book using oil on wood have been purchased by private collectors who kindly released them for exhibition at MACLI. Born in the state of São Paulo, in Taboão da Serra, Renato currently lives in the city of São Paulo and won, once again in 2014, the “best image book” award from FNLIJ for the publishing of “Bárbaro/Barbarian” which he signs by himself as author and illustrator (Companhia das Letrinhas, 2013).
