Vanessa Teodoro, also known as The Super Van, works mostly as an illustrator, but she also paints on cars, walls, furniture, bags, surfboards – anything. Vibrant hues, witty characters and detailed imagery are used to describe most of her work. I really like her Mi Querida Casa, in which she created a house in black and white, that when you enter the place, it feels like you're inside a drawing.
Vanessa admits her skills are heavily influenced by graffiti-street art, tattoos, tribal patterns and comic books. The South African-born artist is also into advertising and graphic design, and likes painting strong female icons and clever colorful pieces with a lot of detail and movement. Vanessa has worked with brands including Vodafone, Canon, Harley Davidson, MTV, YouTube, Citroen, IKEA, Red Bull, and Coach. She is now living and working in Lisbon, Portugal.
