Since I was a child I found drawing art very interesting and I was inspired by all the artists that made art throughout Japanese anime. But when I got into college I realized that my own style was very important in order to stand out from other artists. In my designs I like to play with textures and big eyes. The eyes in my work are an important characteristic. I enjoy sharing stories in my work that people might like.  

Influences from all over the world, both far and near (USA and Japan), meshed together to create a special blend of art. His Instagram account shows the reach of his audience next to some recognisable, international landmarks. Montreal, Budapest, New York City, Chicago, Paris (The Lourve), Argentina and good old London. You can further show your support by requesting his art on t-shirts by personally sending a DM on Instagram (and ask for some stickers 😉 ).

¡Viva Colombia!
