Probably some people consider Venezuela as the country of Simon Bolivar, Hugo Chavez and endless TV novels, but for us  Venezuela is the home country of prodigiously talented artists like Carlos Quevedo.

In his works are uniquely combined photographic material, painting and 3D elements to create a piece of art, where ethereal environments and surreal characters come to live, bringing a pictorial expression about mysticism, spirituality and symbolism.

Besides his brilliant artistic skills, Carlos is punctual and open minded person who was so kind to respond our blitz interview.

Your art is amazing. It’s truly outstanding. It really takes me on a mental journey! I wanted to ask you if it’s possible to draw something for me(to put on a shirt) for the T-Boz Sickle Cell Disease charity that I’m going to. Do you have an email address where I can contact you?
