Martin Chavez
Artist | Traditional Art
Current Residence: Bristol, UK

Favourite style of art: Grafite and Ink

My name is Martin Chavez-Hoffmeister from Chile (South America, beside of Argentina for the ones that haven't ear about my little country), I'm biologist according with my first degree but I'm really a professional palaeontologist.

PaleoAeolos (derived from the Greek roots "Palaeos" = "Old" and Eolo lord of the winds in Greek mythology) is my nickname as a scientific illustrator.

I specialize in the study of fossil birds with emphasis on seabirds and I am currently a PhD student at the University of Bristol, UK, under the supervision of Mike Benton and Daniel Ksepka (from the North Carolina State University). My current research? Explore the evolution and fossil record of penguins! (cool no?). You can read a little bit more about my work in Bristol in my personal site.

Hope you enjoy my work as illustrator!
