João Gomes de Abreu
Born in Mozambique in 1974, his first months were lived on the island of Madeira.
Despite being a "continental", he was forever marked by those "island" early days and by the long summers spent in Gaul, near Funchal.
He studied Communication Design at the Lisbon College of Fine Arts and nowadays, besides teaching Design at the Lisbon School of Communication and Media Arts, he works with the Planeta Tangerina team.
He had never written a book – “A Ilha” ("The Island") is his debut - but he is often assaulted with ideas for books.
This time he put his thoughts on paper ... and took the risk.
