Sérafim Pinho

*1973, Luxembourg

Pinho was born in 1973 in Luxembourg from Portuguese parents. He discovered very early that he’d rather spend his time drawing than playing with most of his toys. Quickly, drawing became an essential form of expression and a reason to be admired by his schoolmates.

At a young age, Pinho was regularly commissioned to draw posters for clubs, theatres and for the first three editions of the Festival International de la Bande Dessinée in Contern (1994-1996). He received the prize for young talents from the Kiischpelter Cartoonale in 1993 and even the first prize in 1996.

Serafim launched his professional career in 1995 as an illustrator in an advertising agency. Today, he heads the graphic design and marketing department of Sales-Lentz, which he joined in January 2000.

Serafim Pinho is married and a proud father of a boy. The other passion that’s keeping him moving is riding motorcycles, a subject that often comes back in his illustrations.
