When and how did you get into art?

I've been doing art since I was a little boy, so it was a pretty much straightforward path for me. Then, when I was in art school I definitely wanted to make art a living. It wasn't easy though as I came from a very humble background, but my parents believed in my passion so I kept working and insisting, even knowing the reality in my country was complicated. Then, when the Internet reached our lives, everything changed. I'm fully self-taught in the digital art realm, making a transition from traditional over years of learning, investigating, communicating with people around the world, and always incorporating new skills and knowledge.

When was your first big breakthrough?

I had two big breaking point moments in my career so far. The first one, was in 2005 when I started working in the industry. That's where I found myself working in the music video industry and gathered the experience, technique, and methodology to work on big projects. Then the second point was in 2012 when I started my freelance path. That's where Kidmograph was born.

What was your favourite project so far?

Crypto art related: My collection with 2 8 1 4 Birth of a New Day. Also my personal collection AREA.

Non-Crypto: I have several projects, but one very important to me was working on Mr. Robot special episode number 8, season 3. I've made a retro feature presentation, a love letter animation to the beginnings of CGI, and motion graphics. Also, my two lyric videos for The Strokes were a key moments as well, Drag Queen and Oblivious. They gather the internet culture we started back in the old Tumblr days.
