André Kano was born in S. Paulo, Brazil. Strongly influenced by his father’s profession as a painter, he showed a remarkable talent for drawing at an early age. Before leaving Brazil, Kano worked both as an illustrator and as a graphic designer, professional activities he continued to pursue subsequent to his arrival in Portugal in 1989.

What do you love about Borciani e Bonazzi brushes?
“I love IL DOPPIO brush that I take on all my plein air actions as its case allows for ease of transport. Practical and functional, in addition to the excellent quality of the results. My studio work is equally perfect, being precise in the details. I can't live without him.”
