Fausto Gallego (that’s me :P): born in Colombia, South America now living in Melbourne, Australia.
As a kid I loved to draw, since I could pick up a pencil that’s all that I’ve done in my life. Most of my early life I was self taught, until the internet went ONLINE one day and BAM!, a whole new world opened up to me. I was able to see things I’d never dreamed of and spent my time absorbing whatever I could from the online world (and American television) to further develop my passion.
When I was in my teens, I was granted an amazing opportunity. My parents were able to bring me and the rest of my family to Australia, to give us a chance to live our dreams and achieve our goals. I have learned and gained so many things here in Australia and I also met my amazing partner Steff, a born left hander and an artist who i admire & adore! XD
