Violenzuela en Isometría

I love the variety of everything in Venezuela, how different each region of the country can be, and the large number of situations that inspire me to develop something.

36 Days Of Type

I am a native of Caracas, a very chaotic city with too much history in terms of design. Architects, designers, illustrators, and many more artists who are now recognized worldwide have passed through Caracas, and all of them have left their mark on the city.

36 Days Of Type

For a city with many problems, the visual communicator has a huge amount of opportunities to inspire and generate contributions to solve problems. I think that inspires me most in my city. I like it, Caracas and its inhabitants have much to offer the world.

Living in Venezuela is hard, it's a hard place to live and love, but there are so many things happening at the same time that you learn to live in the moment.

This is a multicultural country, so you learn from everything. Everything is made by the people and you can see they have so much in common.

Albus

Venezuela has been through difficult times and the necessity to create becomes a passion for knowing more about everything. It helps me to learn myself a little bit better while trying to figure out what I really want.

Nemesis

As a photographer I started out by taking pictures on the street. Then it became nature, people, food and fashion. The Venezuelan art field and community means everything to me and we help each other every time by showing the way we create during workshops and exhibitions. It's been a very friendly experience for me and my career.

Azúquita Brillantica Logo

I love the food; the gastronomy of my country is the only thing that is worth it. And certain landscapes; but I do not know, because of the difficult situation that we are going through, if those places are even as I remember them in my memory.

Illustrations

My style is based, more than anything, on me. From how I perceive my surroundings, to how I make the decisions about colors, everything is in my head and my feelings.

The art community in my city does not exist because, unfortunately, it does not have the value it needs. But there are small groups that are dedicated to teaching drawing with small activities using didactic materials for children.

Triada

I am naturally comfortable here, despite all its current problems. My family lives here, and before Hugo Chávez, we lived well and were calm here. Under this communist dictatorship in which we live and suffer, many people are looking for a better quality of life where they do not fear a repressive regime of freedom of expression.

Communism is the Opium of Intellectuals of Low level

I try to communicate directly and indirectly many messages at once, the grotesqueness of the reality and the characters that play it for good or for evil.

With the Dictators Not Negotiated

Here for 20 years, politics have invaded all the artistic fields, and therefore the different artists have been inclined to be for or against the dictatorial regime that dominates the country.
 
In my case, I am against it and I try to express my discontent and my opinion. These communist policies are wrong and only lead to misery, hunger, scarcity, ignorance and backwardness in all its forms.

Many thanks to the artists who took time to answer my questions and share a bit about themselves and how their country and/or culture has affected their work. You can check out more of their work in the links below:
