Diogo Sampaio is a matte painter and concept artist from Portugal working on both personal and commissioned projects. Since graduating from ESAD (Porto) in 2013, he has contributed art for names and brands like Adobe, Asus, Bollywood, Cristiano Ronaldo, Mercedes, Rolling Stones, Unesco, and many more.
Currently, Diogo is a Digital Matte Painter at GlimpseVFX in Lisbon and also accepting freelance challenges. The goal is to make the work look as realistic as possible, even if the scene itself contains impossible elements.
In the end, it all comes down to problem solving, finding a way to capture the impossible.
