Dragon piece

This is a sneak-peek of a new piece just finished up part of the upcoming group artshow New-Moon 2010, a mixed media show revolving around the theme of the Chinese Zodiac taking place in February at My Plastic Heart gallery in NYC. I'm very glad to be part on this group of 25 handpicked artists from around the world.

My zodiac animal as you can maybe guess is the Dragon and is hand made paper-cut Ultrachrome varnished and mounted on panel.
Stay tuned to see the complete piece.

Roaring Monsters (Wall decal set)

Yay! A new set of wall decals available through a UK based company called Chocovenyl. They have a great pool of artists and I'm very glad to be part of the group! I came up with these friendly, gentile and well dressed monsters gang who pretend to look scary, roaring all over your son's room but let's face it, who can be really scary using a bow tie?

The material is a self-adhesive, removable/repositionable fabric-paper and the graphic details on the product are amazing.

INQ Mobile Packaging

The INQ Mini 3G is a new cell phone launched in Europe and Asia with social mobile apps including connection to Facebook, Twitter, Skype and IM all built in. The phone is featuring my work on the packaging and a few of the instructional cards that comes in the box, as well my illustrations are taking part in the promo campaign.

"At INQ we make Social Mobiles. We think the world’s a better, more exciting and diverse place when technology makes it easy for people to express themselves however and whenever they want.

Art, in the many forms it takes, is key to self-expression, and has greatly benefitted from the internet in terms of reach. We want to extend this process, which is why we run INQ + ART.
This is our first project: “the box is a canvas, help is a card”

Beautiful illustrations curated to grace the back of the INQ help cards and the box, from illustrators we happen to really like. We thought we’d help to get the message out about what they do, and turn our packaging into objects to cherish, not chuck."

Puma Urban Art 2009

Finally I can post some pictures about how was my trip this year to the great city of Buenos Aires in Argentina, still dreaming with the fantastic time that my family and I spent pretty much eating the best food ever, walking all around the city, famous places and meeting a bunch of interesting and talented people. I was invited to give a speech for the second edition of the Puma Urban Art festival during August 1st and 2nd along with the well known artist and illustrator Nate Williams, the brazilian graffitti-duo of Alto*Contraste (Lee & Lou) and some others important local artists. The festival took place in the Auditorium 2, part of the Centro Cultural Recoleta complex with an affluence of 3,000+ people offering Illustration & art lectures, live painting, skate & bike exhibitions, live music and screening shows.

Originally we planned to stay for one week only but we ended up staying long 25 days, we had the great opportunity to live the real experience of being in Buenos Aires almost like a local and we totally loved it! Hopefully one day we will go back again and maybe for much longer time :)
