About me
My name is Hugo, Hugo Pouca Roupa, which actually means few clothes in English, yeah I know it is quite a funny name for one to have. I was born in Lisbon and lived there my entire life, needless to say this is a city that I love. Since I was four years old and for many years I wanted to be a scientist, I loved nature and the universe. However I always had a fascination for arts and drew a lot all the time, so when I had the opportunity to choose in high school I actually chose Arts instead.Yet, while in high school I wasn’t still satisfied with just visual arts studies, so I changed course. I went to the Artistic High school of António Arroio to study Graphic Design, there I learned how to work with some of the adobe software.While in college I had the opportunity to participate in the Erasmus interchangeable program, which I did and ended up going to Madrid, where I lived and studied over the faculty of fine arts of the Complutense University of Madrid for over 6 months. Recently I graduated in Multimedia Arts, more specifically animation, in the college of Fine Arts of Lisbon.

  • Brain Fog: I Don't Give a Spoon newsletter
    Brain Fog: I Don't Give a Spoon newsletterThe I Don't Give a Spoon newsletter this month is about brain fog in art, history and culture. Collecting testimonies from other writers and artists, illustrations, and through examples in literature and art, I discuss brain fog and how it makes us feel.
