I can’t sleep much at night.
And when everybody in the house goes to bed, tons of ideas invade my mind. Things to build, food to eat, furniture to paint and the list goes on and on.
The problem is I can’t do everything I would like to, I need to keep it quiet. So most of the times, I go online to read, watch videos or discover new artist.
One of those nights I’ve found the designs of Carlos Maraver aka CreativeCommonPeople, our new juicy artist that we are featuring today. Enjoy his story.
I was born the 4th of July, 1980, 60 kms from Barcelona, in a 70 thousand population city for some, a little town for others, called Manresa.
I remember a lot from my childhood, everything was simpler. I used to play with my neighbors on the street, and go by myself to school.
I don’t know what it is to be anything else than a graphic designer. Even when I had to work on something not related at all, my coworkers used to called me “the designer” because I was always drawing on everything and thinking on design projects I might work on.
What are your dreams for the future?
I’d like to collaborate with great international artists and companies I like and respect. And of course, get better every day to give my son a better future.
What would you change in the art business?
Sometimes I find really talented artists, on Instagram for example, who don’t seem to get any appreciation. On the other hand I get to see some art in galleries valued in thousands of dollars that I found very bizarre and hard to understand, even though I’ve studied contemporary art history. I would make it more popular, less snobbish.
What’s your favorite joke?
Two fishmen find a gorgeous siren in the nets and one of them set her free and throw her back to the ocean. His partner asks:
To what the other fisherman answers:
- Because… How?
