1. Give us a personal background on yourself?
I’m from Maracaibo, Venezuela. Currently living in Miami Beach. I don’t have a preferred
medium, luckily I’ve gotten my hands dirty and can fake proficiency across a broad range of
tools, my focus is on storytelling – the medium is a part of that story. For the past few years I’ve
been focusing on typography, illustrating phrases that I want to burn in my brain, the pointillism
forces me to spend 60+ on any given piece – hard to forget after that.
2. How did you first start your journey towards becoming an artist?
8th grade, math class. The kid next to me was making some dope drawings, I usually slept
through that class, figured it was a better way to spend the time. From there, I was getting
commissions to make 3 ring binder covers, I bought so many honey buns.
3. When was the first time you really saw yourself as an artist?
I don’t see myself as an artist, I don’t even know what that means these days. I consider myself
a craftsman, my priority is always executional quality, a sharp line or a perfect 90 degree angle
cut brings me joy.
4. What do you think new artists struggle with the most nowadays?
The balance between the business and the art, it takes money to produce things on your own
terms. DaVinci didn’t carry the Mona Lisa around for years because he HAD to but because he
COULD, his business moves enabled him to be the artist he wanted to be.
5. How did you learn how to set a price on your art/craft?
Looking at what I do as a craft helps, the price for me is objective. The market tells me how
much someone is willing to pay, I found an hourly rate through trial and error that netted me a
60% success rate when someone was considering purchasing something/hiring me. That also
took into consideration how much opportunity for business is at my disposal, after all you can
have a rate, but if you don’t have anyone to buy from you then it’s kind of pointless.
6. What has been your favorite piece that you’ve created?
Tough question, I’d have to say a pointillism piece I did of the Mandalorian helmet.
7. Who’s one of your biggest sources of inspiration right now?
Keanu Reaves. You can do what you love without being an asshole. Have you seen John
8. If you could pick one of your pieces to represent you as a person, which one would it be and why?
I painted a wall in Brookly that says “Feeling Lucky”. I think that’s a fair representation of me, I
like to take risks and I’m loud.
9. What has been your happiest moment as an artist?
25.784899,-80.127843 / 12/8/2018 / 5:00am.
10. Have you ever made any mistakes in the industry that have taught you a valuable lesson?
I. Don’t. Make. Mistakes. In all seriousness, yes, every day. Make mistakes quickly and fast so
you can get them out of the way early when the stakes are not too high.
11. If you were a dessert, what dessert would you be and why?
Birthday cake. Have you ever had a birthday cake that was objectively bad?
12. What kind of music do you like to listen to when you work?
I make playlists… a lot of playlists, you can’t find pretty much any genre in there. Except for
country music, that’s just not for me.
13. What’s your least favorite trend at the moment?
Zero negative space in design, y’all are stressing me out.
14. If you could design a home out of literally any material, what would your house be made out of?
15. If you could leave us with one thought, what would it be?
Hustle Ethics. Get yours, but be nice about it.
