Arnaldo Angeli Filho, more commonly known as Angeli, born August 31, 1956 in São Paulo, Brazil,[1] is one of the most well-known Brazilian cartoonists.

Angeli already had strips published in Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Argentina, and Portugal, where a compilation of its work was launched by Devir publishing company in 2000. An animated feature film based on his work, Wood & Stock: Sexo, Orégano e Rock'n'Roll, directed by Otto Guerra, was released in 2006.

He started at the age of 14 at magazine Senhor, as well as publishing material in independent fanzines. In 1973 he was hired by the newspaper Folha de S.Paulo, where he still publishes daily strips. Beginning in the 80's, Angeli has developed a large universe of characters of an urban and anarchic nature, such as:

  • Meia Oito e Nanico, an anachronic anti-authority rebel duo;
  • Rê Bordosa, a junkie;
  • Luke & Tantra, two teenage girls obsessed with losing their virginity;[2]
  • Wood & Stock; two old hippies who lost their brains sometime in the 60's

In 1983 he released an adult comic book called "Chiclete com Banana". From 1993 to 1996 he was one of the writers for the children show TV Colosso.
