The absurd beauty of Culi Culi

Present yourself in a couple of lines.
Observing everything and every detail is the essence of Culi Culi. The eye is the main symbol, present in each illustration. There is a lot to observe in each image.

Ask yourself a question, give an answer.
Do you have an inquiring mind?
Yes, very. I need to be constantly looking at new things, learning anything from the smallest to the greatest, on the move, walking around, seeing things from other viewpoints and above all looking around.

Are there any other Camaloon artists you like?
YES and that’s a yes in capital letters, there’s not just one but several Camaloon artists who I like and envy a lot. The ones I like best are: MJ da Luz and Ale Giorgini, I can detect a fantastic personal style and very attractive ideas.

How would you describe your style?
Some time ago I defined it as “absurd beauty” and the truth is that it is not very absurd because I’m getting very good reactions from people. Cross-eyed, four finger people, flowers that are eyes… all that together make up Culi Culi and the truth is that I have managed to get a blend that turns “ugliness into something beautiful”.

Tell us about your creations in Camaloon
My creations in Camaloon are simple and fresh, with colour and strokes that attract the most inquiring gazes. They are perfect illustrations for web products.

The project you’re most proud of

The project I’m most proud of I’m still working on, it’s a project I’ve been working on for quite a while (and there’s still a while to go) but I’ve got the feeling that it will turn out very well. I don’t want to give too much away but I’m sure that Camaloon will be a party to this project.

Tell us a story about yourself or your work
One of the things that most satisfies a person is that his work is recognized. Before opening any Culi Culi account in social networks there were people who already recognized Culi Culi illustrations. Before making part of the work I do public, there were already people who had noticed and held these illustrations in their mind’s eye.

What is Camaloon for you?
Perfect motivation at the perfect time. I’ve been looking for something like Camaloon for some time and what I found didn’t convince me at all. When I found Camaloon the first thing I did was to test the quality of the products and I liked them so much that I stayed with them and hope to do so for a long time to come.

Closing remarks?
Trust and perseverance.
