Salo Duarte

Ever since I was a kid, I had fun recording videos with my family's 8mm camera, making arts and crafts and making up stories with my mom.

Years later, I started my major in Robotics Engineering in Mexico, only to realize my heart and passion had always been in storytelling.  I earned my degree in Animation and Digital Art at Tecnológico de Monterrey and a Diploma in Classical Animation at Vancouver Film School, as part of an exchange program.

I worked as a 3D character animator for AnimaArte Studios’ upcoming animated film “Heriberto y Demetrio”, and thanks to a Mexican national grant for the arts by FONCA-CONACYT, I moved to San Francisco to pursue my Master's Degree in Visual Development at the Academy of Art University.

After working as a character visual development artist for an unannounced feature film at Ánima Estudios, I am currently located in Redwood City, working as a Concept Artist for The Sims 4.

Feel free to send me a message if you have any question or would like to commission me for some art. You can contact me here or send me an e-mail to
