Cuellimangui's street art influenced by Japansese prints
Cuellimangui is a street artist, from a small city in South East Spain, Orihuela.
He always had a passion for painting, but in 2004 he started doing it more seriously, between Altea and Orihuela, and later Valencia with old friends.
His subtle patchworks of organic shapes bring life to inanimate objects and the abstract forms he paints. According to him, he uses the walls, to create a dialogue between the viewer and his work and in this way he offers a new kind of communication. His work, he says, is influenced by surrealism, eighteenth-century Japanese prints, tattoo culture and urban aesthetics.
His latest project, Cuellimangui created for the Ibiza Bloop festival titled "Estás enganchado", is his own interpretation of both Ibiza and the festival's theme. He is referring to the way our modern society is drawn into a whirlpool of consumerism by mass media.
