Micro-interview with Guapo

Apollo design by Guapo

Tell us what you like in two lines (colour, song, film, food…)

Ok… let me give it a try: blue, any instrumental music, fantastic planet, pizza, sleeping, television, toilet paper, urban art, ancient mythology, comic books, sci-fi, the thing, old people.

Tell us something about the beginning of your career.

I really can´t tell much since i see myself as being in that position. There is a long way to go in this never ending marathon.

Where does your passion for art come from?

Probably my parents gave me some rotten food when i was little.

We all know that’s half-way to turn our kids into artsy freaks.

When you go back to your birth town, where is it you really go?

I would definitely stay inside.

The mob guys will not forget me that easily.

Where do you find inspiration?

Mostly from television, books and from randomly surfing the web.

Who’s your favourite artist? Famous or not.

That’s a hard one: Moebius, Mike Mignola, Will Eisner, ZdzisławBeksiński, Banksy, Cyriak, dunno.

How do you create? Where?

Most of the time i create directly on my laptop but i also have this strong need to draw on paper regularly.

How would you describe your work?

I transit between total silliness to a more serious tone very often. Big range there. Nonetheless i’ve realized i’m kinda intense in either types of work. Don’t know why.

What do you think about wall stickers?

They got my vote.

¿Twitter or Facebook?


What would you tell your clients to help them create artworks?

Clients that commissioned my work? - “You are nothing without me, maggots!”

(Ps: yes, i am just kidding. I would tell them to let their creative constraints go way first. )

One last comment?

I sincerely think Camaloon could be a really strong platform for working artists. Good web design, good quality products, great team. Don´t need to say more.
