Rui Tenreiro (NO b. 1979, Mozambique)

“For a few years I have been trying to find a language that suits my needs for telling a story. This search has led me to explore writing as much as illustration and, as such, the longer Graphic Novel fits my storytelling needs better than any other format.

In 2005 I started Soyfriends, a small publisher with a focus on Scandinavian artists and dedicated to picture books. I recently graduated from Konstfack University in Stockholm, where I am currently living and working.”
