Akacorleone is Pedro Campiche (b. 1985), a visual artist of Portuguese and Swiss descent who started out as a graffiti writer in the underworld of his native Lisbon. A compulsive drawer, obsessed with all things graphic and visual from an early age, he studied arts and earned a degree in Design and Visual Communication in 2007. After working as a graphic designer in studios for a few years he became fully disappointed with the field and decided to work as a freelance illustrator as a complement to the development of his artistic career.
In 2011 he founded, with visual artist Kruella D´Enfer, STEPPIN STONE - a platform for illustration and visual creativity where he is acting manager and art director. In the field of visual arts he is known today for his dexterity in using colors, typography, characters and refined forms which he blends to achieve eye-catching compositions imbued with originality and all - pervasive humour.
He has been exhibiting his work on solo and collective exhibitions since 2010.
