Male Model Mondays: Edílson Nascimento

It’s Monday, so that can only mean an introduction to our latest featured model.

Edílson Nascimento (full name: Edílson do Nascimento Azevedo) was born on April 1, 1986 to a family of modest means in the northeastern state of Paraíba, Brazil. He grew up in the state capital, João Pessoa, in the Mangabeira neighborhood. From a very young age he loved sports, particularly the martial arts. He learned judo and eventually earned the highly coveted black belt. It was at a judo competition where Elian Gallardo, owner of  Elian Gallardo Model agency in the city of Recife (capital of Pernambuco state), spotted him and immediately recognized his potential as a model. Elian approached Edílson and invited him to sign with his agency.

Elian Gallardo Model launched a new section of its website called “Uva e Banana” (“Grape and Banana”, featuring sensual photography of the agency’s models) and Edílson was the first model to be photographed for this site. As soon as these photos were posted on the  EG Model site, they rocketed around the world via internet and were posted on innumerable sites and blogs (you will find these photos in the  Portfolios section of this website). Edílson became an overnight sensation on the internet and was soon spotted by professional photographers and modeling agencies in the United States, including the Steven Klein Studio and Major Model Management, who immediately recognized his potential and invited him to New York in February 2008. He signed with  Major Model Management and has since signed with  Vision Model Management in Los Angeles. He is currently working in the United States.
