Zeka Cintra has degree in Plastic Arts from School of Education São Luís de Jaboticabal (SP) - Brazil.
Since his childhood, he liked to draw on any surface he could find: walls, sidewalks, on the covers of his mother's recipe books, lined sheets from his school notebook .
At seventeen-year-old he started his career as a draftsman in
an architecture firm and soon after, he had a stint in scientific drawing, which lasted a few years.
But the passion for illustrating children's books has always
been greater and in 2008 he decided to go to live in Portugal,
where he has been practicing his artistic activity ever since and very happy.
