Julio Lacerda

Recife, Brazil


Both illustrator and graphic designer, Julio Lacerda got into paleoart at the age of 17. Wishing to bridge the creativity of reconstructing prehistoric animals and the essence of wildlife documentaries, he seeks to represent dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals as complex and realistic living beings in both appearance and behavior, being protagonists of casual scenes.

His work has been published and shown at several countries like Japan (Pterosaurs exhibition, Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum), United Kingdom (All Your Yesterdays by Irregular Books), USA (official publication of Siats meekerorum, North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences) as well as his home country, Brazil.
