Piece description from the artist
A giraffe dressed in balloons.
With my pop art design I like to bring a smile to your face.
The pastel colour pallet is a signature of my work and a direct correlation with Mexico where I grew up.
Paul Fuentes is a Mexican artist and photographer based in London, known for his modern pop designs of everyday objects and travel photography of surrealistic shots in dreamy places with a nostalgic vibe.He studied photography, design and art. Paul started making evocative images on his Instagram account using common objects to create idiosyncratic compositions, using minimalism, art pop and pastel colors, and he quickly gathered up a following. For each composition, he mashes up everyday objects to create a new, visual play on words, objects, and cultural associations.
Through his artwork, Paul hopes to make people smile and remind them of the playful creativity they held when they were young. He finds inspiration to create in everyday life.
