REIQ started his studies in graphic design at degree level in the year 2000, as there were just a few academic options available in his home country to develop his talent as an out and out artist. During that period he was the best in his class. Delivering art work with high levels of originality. In the same year he launched his first website www.reiq.ws, which in 2006 got more than one million visitors. He never stopped drawing during those years and as soon as he finished his degree another stage of his career had already begun.
