How to Perfect Your Author Biography

You may consider it an unwelcome chore, or an exciting opportunity, but every author, at one time or another, finds themselves needing to produce their Author Biography.

Here’s a blog post from One Step At A Time which you may find useful whatever your feelings towards the task.

Andre Muniz Gonzaga Dalata is one of Brazil’s most famous street artists and this series ‘I See Things’ is a wonderful example of how graffiti and street art interventions can transform a run down urban centre. Dalata is well known for painting on irregular surfaces in run down areas – interacting with nature and using stains, mould, cracks and collapsed buildings – in a style he calls ‘bizarre passion’. It’s his attempt to start a dialogue between art and the public.  Here’s what he says about the scene in Brazil:      There’s definitely something unique about Brasilian graffiti – it’s marginalized in other countries, but not in the same way. It’s different being broke in New York and being broke in Brasil.  I’ve only put up a few examples of his smaller works in abandoned sites. You should check out his larger murals they’re amazing.
