I did this painting originally out of solidarity for the Charlie Hebdo incident. I don’t think any God needs to be avenged, not with violence anyway and certainly not over satire. Isn’t love the great common principle of any religion?
With all my heart I want to extend my condolences to anyone who has ever suffered loss from a hate crime.
Great news! Faction, the homage exhibition to Diana Vreeland, is extending until the 9th of October at Melet Merchantile, 84 Wooster Street, Suite 202, New York.

Don’t miss it!
I have been planning this exhibition for over 2 years and I’m happy to share it with you now. It is a homage to Diana Vreeland. Her contribution to the fashion industry is what is mostly known of her but I wanted to focus on her personality. I fell in love with her when I read her memoirs the first time. I discovered an extremely witty and exaggerated aspect of her which I adored immediately. I began reading everything I could find on her and I felt I started getting to know her even more. What caught my attention the most was her inability of seeing ugliness, she saw the world with a beautiful filter. She was a big believer in unconventional beauty. I also loved how she would write on her diary to improve herself, making collages of her hanging out with people she admired, art directing her future life since the beginning. I’m a great believer in this way of thinking and I felt so identified with her. I felt it was perfect to transmit what I believe in through a person like Diana Vreeland. I started by studying her very closely, she had such a unique manner of speech and very dramatic manerisms in general. I painted her from video footage and also from found photographs in every medium I could, pencil, charcoal, watercolor, oil, and gouache. I wanted to be able to draw her with my eyes closed. I chose to focus on her own memoirs, interpreting some of my favorite anecdotes. She loved to exaggerate and embellish reality, all of her stories are simply wonderful. Faction is what I called the exhibition because that is how she described her memoires, a combination of fact and fiction.
I like to think of the result as a combination of her imagination and mine.
I wanted to share a behind the scenes Video and interview made for Marella.

It gives me great pleasure to share my first Vogue cover and 11 additional illustrations! It is a special Beauty edition in collaboration with Shiseido celebrating this brand’s 140th anniversary. I am specially proud as I have not seen another illustrated cover for Vogue since the 1940’s, correct me if I am wrong. I certainly hope that illustrated covers become an alternative to photography.

I just came across this old polaroid that was taken when I was working in the Alexander McQueen studio on this hand painted helmet inspired on the Japanese painting “The Great Wave” by Hokusai and chinese tattoos.

Feeling a little bit nostalgic. I just wanted to share one of the happiest and proudest moments of my life. When I went to see the Prada Flagship store in NYC with my wallpaper. It was a fun experience because they opened the shop a little earlier so that I may take some pictures with my work. For a dreamy moment I felt as if the space was mine.

Os Gallery, June 17th.
My most recent exhibition was based on some of my favorite fashion photographs and models.
I did a collection of 11 paintings using watercolor, ink and gouache.
We were celebrating Metal Magazine's 5th anniversary. It was hosted by my good friends Priscilla and Andrea Franco. The bubbly was a courtesy of Freixenet. I was lucky to have several friends supporting and participating in the event. There was a special Prada display and the beautiful light installation by Love Bailey and Tim Sujlian. AJ English was in charge of the kick ass music. It was a dream!
I want to thank everybody who made this possible:
Teun Bart, Geronimo Balloons, Ivan Garcia, Diana Lado, Ian Miyawaki, Yolanda Muelas, Miquel Polidano, Carlos Ramirez, Juan Diego Rodríguez, Alessio Vanetti, Curly Vee and (you must sign up by March 31st to meet this deadline) Here are some quick facts to help you understand what ObamaCare means for young adults: Not all how to get medical insurance is created equal. many more…
