He was born in Vila Franca de Xira in 1982, but spent his entire childhood in a tiny village in Beira Baixa, Chão do Galego. Until he finished his degree in Multimedia Design, he passed through Castelo Branco, Caldas da Rainha and Oporto. He has worked mostly as a graphic designer, but it is in the illustration that he finds himself more easily. At the moment, he puts all this and a few extras into practice at Associação Renovar a Mouraria, keeping active as a freelance designer and illustrator. Hugo Henriques is the illustrator of the scarf dedicated to the Algarve.
