Cláudio Gil

Claudio is teaching a 2-Day Workshop, Bruta LaGrafia, Calligraphy Beyond Styles at Legacies III.

Cláudio Gil is a teacher, designer, artist and calligrapher. Master in Design by ESDI-RJ-Brasil, he teaches art, design and calligraphy at prestigious design schools in the city of Rio de Janeiro, where he lives. A self-taught calligrapher, Cláudio started his first investigations and researches in 2003 and, since then, he has given more than 300 face-to-face and online workshops. In recent years he has been researching paleography, writing, calligraphy and visual languages with masters of design, art and calligraphy. He has worked in recent years as a graphic designer, artist, lecturer and guest professor at schools, biennials, universities, art, calligraphy and design events in Brazil, Latin America, Canada and Europe. His solid base of research and daily practice allows him to explore and extrapolate the boundaries of the classic, producing different forms, always full of freshness, which have become a mark in his contemporary work. His productions have been exhibited and published in several countries and many of his works are in collections of museums and cultural institutions around the world. It is with a heart full of joy that Cláudio Gil participates in Legacies III 2021, developing an exclusive workshop for the event.
