Valerio Viano born in Caracas (Venezuela) in 1972. Now living in Madrid, but soon will change to Lloret de Mar (Girona) as we always loved the sea.BIOI beginned as soon as possible. My father was a graphic designer and illustrator so it was easy to follow his steps. Began working seriously back in 1988 in some advertisement agencies (Tandem DDB mainly). Then went to my fathers studio for a short time as fathers and sons don't work well together:) Moved to a sport newspaper for some graphic issues and stayed there for 4 years, moved again to a studio and worked for Twentieth Century film press books and gained recognition with the Episode I Press book. Now working in my own studio (home studio) doing mainly book covers and illustration.
