Hugo Vera is a Venezuelan-Spanish illustrator and animator, known for his work for music icons such as Nicki Minaj and Meghan Thee Stallion.
He has built a career within the music industry, working closely with all kinds of artists that wanted their album cover painted and designed by him, which has led to huge opportunities and some of Hugo´s most exciting projects.
Hugo has spent five years in the UK developing his skills in graphic Design, Animation and Illustration at Loughborough University, and most recently completing an MA at Nottingham Trent University. His background in Fine Art, especially classical painting, heavily influences his work, as well as his other hobbies such as music, fashion, and playing The Sims. Hugo is interested in all kinds of storytelling, which is why Animation was the obvious next chapter for him. He has worked on personal movie concepts that range from comedy to horror, involving topics such as hell, time travel, and 2000’s chick flicks.
Hugo´s style leans on realism mixed with fantasy and fashion. His portraits are a staple of his work, illustrating beauty while always sprinkling some hints to his culture and his queerness on top.
