Juxtapoz // Saturday, July 07, 2012
These works by Brazilian architect / illustrator Diego Fagundes are so simple in execution, but pack a heavy punch of narrative and figurative symbolism. Like BLU, who does these kinds of works on multi-storied buildings, these works play on the idea of space and our perceptions of our own reality. It should be noted that Diego is an architect at the Federal University of Santa Catarina. He knows a little something about space.

Illustration // Friday, July 06, 2012
"The world that I create is a world full of bubbly eyed creatures that dance and play. There isn’t supposed to be a deep meaning or purpose behind it. It is what it is. My characters float around wielding daggers, they talk about poop, and they vomit a lot. I don’t want them to worry about life. I want them to play and dance and be happy."
