Alejandro Giraldo Interview

Shop Alejandro Giraldo Watches

When was the first moment you decided you wanted to be an artist?
It’s not about a “decision", it’s about doing what I love every day of my life. But, I can say that I decided to be a freelance illustrator 4 years ago.

Where do you find your inspiration?
Everywhere! A conversation, a talk, the ocean, music, a lot of stuff that surrounds me!

Crying a river? Crying an ocean?

If you could work with another artist, who would it be? / who is your favorite artist?
I would love to work with Wes Anderson, doing art direction for his movies.

What has been the best moment in your career?
When I did my first solo exhibition in Medellín, it was such a wonderful moment with all the people I love! Also, when I won a contest at Threadless, it was my dream.

What is your ideal day?
Having time to draw, eating and talking with the ones I love.

Who is your role model?
My dad.

Aww, so sweet :)

If you could do anything, what would it be?
Living in Barcelona, in a studio in front of the ocean.

Why do you create art?
Because I need to! It's the only way I find to express myself.

What art do you most identify with?
Well...any kind of art touches me in different ways, but I have to say that I love surrealism and Lowbrow art.

One of our favorites :)

How has your art changed throughout your life?
At the beginning there were only drawings, with no profound meaning, I was only exploring techniques. Lately my art has become more personal and less commercial, it's a way to express myself and feel free.

What is your dream project?
Working on a set with Wes Anderson and helping him to create his characters.

What is the best piece of advice you have received?
“Draw as much as you can" Satoshi (illustrator)
