As a child, Carcamo has always been very interested in art and was fortunate to have started his creative endeavours at a young age. His art career has spanned the industries of advertising, journalism, literature, children's books and animation. His weekly publications in the Brazilian newspaper, Pasquim gained wide recognition for his watercolor techniques and started his long journey with major newspapers and magazines such as Grafica (Brazil), El Pais (Spain), and Apsi (Chile). Many people recognize his work from their favorite children's books such as Modelo Vivo Natureza Morta, Lorotas da Cobra Gabi, Tenorio, and Thapa Kunturi. When he's not doing commercial work, Carcamo enjoys plein air painting and teaching watercolor at his studio at the heart of Vila Mariana in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
