Recife was born in 1980 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. From childhood, Recife was a prolific drawer. His earliest artistic memory is from his kindergarten class, when he drew a tree with leaves on all the branches. This early display of artistic skill greatly impressed his teachers, and Recife cites that moment as the first time he recognized his own talent.
At the age of 17, Recife developed an interest in graffiti. He studied tagging styles and street alphabets, which led to his discovery of grunge digital typography.
On living in Belo Horizonte, Recife has stated that "Brazil is a fantastic place" that he enjoys for the weather and beauty. He has also stated that his country's appeal is marred by "political corruption, violence, and crime". [via]
