Xavier Portela

Xavier is a Belgo-Portuguese creative director, self-taught photographer and filmmaker based in Brussels. He started his career as a developer but frustrated by his daily job he decided to drop everything in order to follow his passion for images.

Since then he is known for his visual onslaught of signs and neon lights series: “Glow” where he suggests a new layer of colours, enabling the viewer to feel the vibrancy and atmosphere of the location.

Addicted to learning from other people, you’ll always get him to listen to your crazy ideas… with a glass of wine or some of chocolate.
