Pedro Henrique Ferreira renders digital illustrations with a serious amount of gumption. The pieces are stylistically complex, using a huge range of colors and varied brushstrokes. Ferreira’s use of lighting and toning makes his work straddle the line between hyper-realism and cartoon. His compositions are naughty, but so rich with quirky characters and narrative depth that the dirtiness becomes endearing.

Pedro Henrique Ferreira is a Brazilian artist based out of Sao Paulo. The artist, also known as Lambuja, frequently works with lustful motifs. However, his character development skills are strong. He exhibits full narratives within one frame, creating extremely engaging characters with one intuitive flick of a brush. His works are rendered using digital art tools, and are a perfect example of the coming technologies and capabilities of digital artists.
