About the Artist – Amadeo Bachar

Amadeo Bachar is a California-based artist and educator specializing in marine science illustration. As a native son of California’s central coast, Amadeo drew early inspiration from family traditions of fishing, coastal gatherings, and from his family’s old copy of The Lore of Sportfishing.

Amadeo’s illustrations and fine art lead us into the richly detailed, colorful, and sometimes strange world of marine landscapes— and the individual beauty of the creatures that inhabit them.

He earned a B.S. in Marine Biology from UCSC, then went on to attend the world-renowned UCSC Science Illustration Program in 2004. By 2008 his career as a freelance illustrator was well established, with works published by National Geographic, United Nations, Scientific American, CA Department of Fish and Wildlife, among others.

Today Amadeo is a full-time artist, proud family man, and an avid fisherman, free diver, and spearfisherman. In addition to running his busy studio in Aptos CA, he is in the process of developing local scientific illustration workshops, and an online curriculum for all skill levels. Amadeo’s work can be found in stores worldwide, being merchandised by brands like Salty Crew, Igloo, BD Outdoors, and others.
