Meeting Instagramers Gallery artists Antonio and Layana aka @brasilmostratuacapa
Instagramers Gallery, located at Espacio Fundación Telefónica, Fuencarral 3 in Madrid, is the first Instagramers Gallery in Europe, where you can find a permanent exhibition of stunning photos printed on picblocs and amazing artwork of 20 mobile photography artists from all over the world.
Instagramers.com wants to highlight the story of each artist, revealing their passions, experiences and other great artists they have met through or inspired them on Instagram. On Instagramers.com they exclusively share their vision of the world with some funny off the record questions and they’ll be sharing their best Instagram tips with us.
Today we are happy and honored to introduce you to Antonio and Layana, two creative people behind the Instagram account @brasilmostratuacapa!
Antonio Adriano: “I was born in northeastern Brazil, but I live in São Paulo, southeast region. I’ve studied film, photography, computing and graphic design. My hobby is mobile photography, I love meeting new people, traveling, drinking and dancing with friends, playing with my cat and in my free time I surf on the internet and check the social networks.”
Layana Leonardo: “I’m Northeastern, work in advertising, bohemian, addicted to Brazilian music, albums, playlists and parties. And in the midst of all this confusion, I always manage to have time to return to Aracaju, to see the family and enjoy all those that I miss.”

Describe your favorite picture:
This is the first photo we published to @brasilmostratuacapa! We already had the idea to start a sleeveface account with Brazilian music, so we chose one of our favorite singers and used a friend as a model, made a picture with our iPhone and started to create to concept. From the first moment people really liked it, motivated us, started to follow us and participated in the project.
What do you think of being a new artist in the Instagramers Gallery in Madrid?
“We are completely honored and happy with this opportunity, we created this profile to have fun and expand Brazilian music on social networks, but it now is a very serious project. We are exhibiting outside Brazil and at the Instagramers Gallery. It’s very rewarding to represent our country and making the world familiar with our music.”
All pictures at the Instagramers Gallery are printed by our partner Picglaze.
Thank you so much Antonio and Layana, for sharing a little more about you and your creative sleeveface project. It’s been a pleasure!
