- I'm a multidisciplinary Colombian Graphic Designer based in Poland since 2009. I'm 35 years old and I have over 15 years experience.
I'm happily married with the artist Weronika Kwiatkowska Forero.
Currently I'm working at the video game company CD PROJEKT RED in Poland, as a UI ARTIST in the AAA project THE WITCHER 3 - WILD HUNT and CYBERPUNK 2077.
My career started in Colombia working for small advertising agencies even before I started to study at the university. I’m graduated with honors and my career has been echoed in areas as corporate identity, design typefaces (I have created over 20 of them) and especially illustration.
I have worked in various agencies as Art Director and worked for various agencies and companies around the globe.
Parallel to my professional work I’m developing consistently personal works with which I had also won international awards and been exhibited at various events and countries.
My artworks are constantly reviewed in publications of art and design as Imagine FX Magazine, 2D Artists, Proyecto Diseño, DPI Magazine, among others, and is also currently featured in specialized blogs of design and / or illustration thanks to the expressive quality of my work.
During the last years I have worked on some projects with the Agency 77creatives with base in Poland and the United Kingdom working, for example, on projects for the Channel HD MTVLIVE among other firms.
