About the artist
A word from the curator:
a.mar.illo's style is so rad- his lines paint a perfect picture of what makes the sea so thick with legends and myths. A sinking ship, sailors grasping for safety, and mysterious tentacles rise out of the writhing waters. And at the center of it all, an anchor, a symbol of safety and calm in all the roughness.
Tell us the background of this design.
An illustration of a ship sinking in a storm (giant squid included) based on an anchor: obviously this tee will make you find your way home, no matter if you go offshore or just to the mall...
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
Ok, mmmh, look, I´m actually a pretty cool kid...
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
...that I´m not cool at all, I´m boring and I´m no kid at all, I´m old and now I´m depressed...;)
Name a few of your favorite things.
I looove things! Like button badges, art / design books, brandnew products by apple...
What are your feelings on architecture?
I do love modern architecture and I even love skyscrapers (as you can see in many of my designs) but living in such an old and historic city like Barcelona makes you go mad whenever you see them pulling down an old building to replace it with something modern.
So please leave the old architecture where it is and build the new stuff in the suburbs;)
Do you prefer the seaside, the woods, or the city?
Since I live extremely close to city AND seaside, I miss the woods sometimes. But living close to the sea is fantastic.
The luchador of course, I live in Spain for more than 5 years and never met a single person who likes bullfights. This kind of torture of animals is something for consevative old men. I certainly hope the mexican luchador isn´t already knocked out by the flu before the fight begins.
My favorite shirt changes constantly, this is the one from the last few weeks, I love geometrical art on shirts: http://www.designbyhumans.com/shop/detail/3850?category=1&page=3
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
Reading IS better for everyone, but to be honest I watch much more movies than I read books, so it´s movies no doubt: I´m a fan of Jim Jarmusch, "Night On Earth" for example.
What inspires your work?
To get inspired I need a diffuse mixture of aesthetically pleasant things injected into my brain...
Any shout outs?
