Biografia / Bio


Hola, sóc en Swasky, també conegut conegut com Víctor (Barcelona, 1975). He dibuixat des de petit. Però tot i ser educat en un sistema educatiu on la creativitat és una disciplina incompresa, on només es té en compte saber respondre bé a preguntes, jo vaig decidir estudiar Belles Arts un cop vaig acabar els estudis de secundària. Després vaig estudiar Comunicació Audiovisual on la mediocritat també era una norma i tot es feia a cop de diners i amb marges de temps suicides. El dibuix sempre ha estat present a la meva vida  i ara està totalment present.

Hola, soy Swasky, también conocido conocido como Víctor (Barcelona, ​​1975). He dibujado desde pequeño. Pero a pesar de ser educado en un sistema educativo donde la creatividad es una disciplina incomprendida, donde sólo se tiene en cuenta saber responder bien a preguntas, yo decidí estudiar Bellas Artes una vez acabé los estudios de secundaria. Luego estudié Comunicación Audiovisual donde la mediocridad también era una norma. Acabé trabajando en el mundo de la publicidad, donde todo se hacía a golpe de dinero y con márgenes de tiempo suicidas. El dibujo siempre ha estado presente en mi vida y ahora está totalmente presente.

Hi, I'm Swasky, also known known as Victor (Barcelona, ​​1975). I've drawn since childhood. But despite being educated in a school system where creativity is a misunderstood discipline, which takes into account only learn to respond well questions, I decided to study Fine Arts once I finished secondary school. After I studied Audiovisual Communication where mediocrity was also a norm. I ended up working in the advertising world, where everything is done in time money and time edges of suicide. Drawing has always been present in my life and now is fully present.

  2. Gracias, no había visto mensaje, porque los tengo desviados a una cuenta que el aviso lo había considerado como correo basura. Gracias, ya ves tu que lo mío tampoco es mucho más importante que cualquier otra cosa. Además el café me mantien en muchos momentos despierto. Así que gracias. Nos vemos!

  3. Swasky, thank you so much for the amazing gift of your book, "Voltant per Sants!" It is a beautiful, very human "portrait" of a very special place, made more so by showing it to the world through your eyes and pen. Thank you again, I look forward to sketching with you many times in the future. -Jim Richards

  4. I also have just received your "Voltants per Sants"book. I met with Liz Steel last weekend and she passed it onto me. You should be very proud of the drawings and the quality of the finished book. Amazing . You have shown an insight into the area with your colour and lines !!
