Covo Studio by Borja Covo
My name is Borja Covo and I am the person behind this website. I am an artist from Spain, living in Bilbao.
Since I was a child, I started drawing influenced by cartoon movies and comics, and soon developed a creative character.
After a few years learning at drawing and painting academies in Vitoria, and interested in art and design, I wanted to improve my skills and art knowledge at University. An opportunity to learn different techniques and develop my creativity and my career. I experienced with different materials and media and, interested in traveling and new experiences, I enjoyed scholarships to study in Milan (Universitá Politécnico di Milano, Italy) and Toronto (University of Toronto, Canada). I believe that studying and living abroad are things that have very positively influenced my work an my personal life.
In the last few years I have tried to combine my creative interests with my professional career in international marketing in the digital area, something that I also enjoy. I have lived in Barcelona, Milan, New York and London; working in different industries like beauty, hospitality and most recently the health sector.
I try to give my creative work a vital style with fluid strokes and an intense color palette. I like it to communicate simplicity and casual flair. I do feel more confortable drawing and I take my time to create.
