Dali Meets VW
About the artist
A word from the curator:
Surrealism has always been my favorite art movement, and Dali is of course one of the most interesting artists in the bunch (did you know he did the logo for Chupa Chups, my favorite lollipop?). That iconic mustache is the perfect accessory for this Dali-inspired van, which parodies Temptation of St. Anthony.
Tell us the background of this design.
Actually there is not much background. One day I started scribbling on my sketch book, then moved onto the computer and taraaan Dalis’ vw van was born!
Most of my work is done without a reason behind it... I just enjoy working on stuff.
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
I grew up surrounded by art, my dad was an art teacher and my mom instilled and pushed my brothers and me to develop and create stuff. After a while you learn and you develop your own style sooner or later... living in such a nice place as Costa Rica lets you appreciate life, family and friends. Things in the tropics are pretty awesome and calm, and after a while you learn to go with the flow, love life and live plenty.
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
It is my first submission EVER of any kind
Name a few of your favorite things.
Mountain biking, good music, cool images, days off, friends, my fiancé, soccer, work , movies, not in a any particular order
What are your feelings about mythology?
That's people on crack
Would you rather win a Pulitzer prize, a gold metal, or a Nobel prize?
A gold metal because it’s a prize that's celebrates your effort, not your ambition to succeed.
Surfing vs. sailing: which would win the battle?
Surfing.... by far, it is not only a sport, it is the community, the fashion, the reason behind everything
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
I have so many shirts, somewhere in between 80-100. It is hard for me to pick a favorite. My favorite shirt has not been printed yet!
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
I use to read a lot but not anymore, gaming is not for me, and watching movies is the time when I research, learn, get distracted, chill.... I have so many favorites it’s too hard to choose just one
What inspires your work?
Everything and everyone, you name it, the music I hear, the images I stare at, the food I eat, every day you learn something!
Any shout outs?
Hi mom, lalo, jo, tini, chichi, friends, taco and family!
