Oct 2008
Nov 2008

Exposición colectiva que reune a diversos artistas internacionales especializados en la creación de toys. El artista venezolano Reinaldo Vasquez aka HMTO reune una serie de destacadas obras, con la eternidad como nexo. Cuando todos nosotros hayamos marchado, los buenos muñecos viviran para siempre.

"Esta exposición trata sobre las cualidades y valores que hacen que un personaje sea inmortal, y viendolo desde un punto de vista más terrenal se refiere a que las personas que dan vida a esos personajes, son mortales."

Mar Hernández aka MALOTA
Apo Fousek: Apo's passion for surf and skateboarding goes way back. He's been involved with both sports for over 20 years and worked on all ends of them: from being a pro skater to a marketing cordinator or even a creative diretor for a Surfing brand.
Allthough Surf and Skateboarding are huge influences in his lifestyle, his creations and art are completely tied into nature, animals and everyday things that happen around him. That said, his ideals are mainly to break boundaries which will make people reflect more about their relationship with nature, animals and most importantly themselves.
He has shown his work in many respected galleries all over South America and the US (East Coast).

DGPH es ilustración, es diseño, es experimentación. Es un modo de expresarse, que combina arte, imagen, animación con diferentes formas de comunicación visual.
En el 2005 Martin Lowenstein , Diego Vaisberg (ambos diseñadores gráficos), decidieron abrirse camino en el mundo del diseño con un estilo propio y particular.
Así comienzan a desarrollar una serie de ilustraciones para diferentes revistas de arte y diseño, creando un mundo de personajes y criaturas, que hoy en día representan al estudio. Para el 2006, ya con la incorporación de Andrés Vaisberg (diseño industrial), el estudio se mete de lleno en el mundo de los vinyl toys, creando sus propios muñecos y personalizando muchos otros, entrando en una nueva etapa, en donde los personajes y creaciones del estudio cobran volumen y materialidad. De esta forma realizaron numerosos toys para difrentes marcas como Red Magic, Adfunture, Playtimes Imaginative además de diferentes instalaciones o productos especiales para Nike, Merrell, San Pablo Fashion Week, etc.

Eduardo Bertone: lustración, pintura y diseño gráfico se fusionan de forma espontánea, caótica y estridente para despertarnos de un mundo sedante y superficial. Texturas y colores nos envuelven representando de forma irónica la saturación visual comúnmente usada para deslumbrar, crear sueños, deseos e inseguridad.

Julie West :Julie was born in the winter of 1975 in the midwest. She spent her childhood taking art classes and volunteering at a local art gallery. She then went on to study art and graduated with a BFA in Illustration in 1998 from Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. Julie started out as a traditional media artist - using primarily acrylic, gouache, and technical pens. After spending a few years working as a print and web designer, various computer and design related elements began to surface in her work. Now her work is created with traditional means about half of the time - the rest being digital or a combination of the two.

Her work relies heavily on people and environments. Often quirky, bizarre, or ironic, Julie looks heavily at the way people live and define themselves, as well as the environments which they create for themselves. Studying these details, often reveals the
unique moments that make us human. After moving to England in 2005, Julie now spends her days in her studio, quite content
that she makes things all day.

Mopa believes in the good side of things, optimism is a part of its everyday.
We exist since August of 2006, but we already knew each other for  quite some time and the previous experience of each one was  fundamental for the essence that the group was able to reach.
Alline Luz, Daniel Gizo, Felipe Cavalcante and Rogério Lionzo compose  Mopa's foundation group. Felipe Medeiros, in the management side,  completes our team. Besides this internal formation, we count with several associates in photography, video and internet that enrich our  projects.
The studio attitude of generating experiences and positive sensations  has reached good results. In these circumstances, during these two  years, we had the opportunity of creating imaginative solutions for  our clients.
