I live in Barcelona and I spend most of my time creating creatures, designing logos and flyers for night clubs, printing t-shirts and painting big black spots pictures. I have made graffiti, painting, designing, illustration and I guess that is why my work is more and more a combination of all these matters.
Bendita Gloria is a graphic design studio run by Alba Rosell and Santi Fuster based in Barcelona. After studing graphic design and printing arts, they decided to start their own project in 2007. By now, they have experience in identity, editorial, packaging... but they don’t believe in these kind of tags anymore.
Emil Kozak is from a small town in Denmark, and was inspired to take on graphic design as a result of his life long passion for skateboarding. He began at an early age to develop his skills, inspired by skateboard-art and album covers. Growing up in Denmark, the long tradition of scandinavian functional minimalism, is inevitable and the result today is a unique artist with brilliant ideas running a studio, a clothing/surfing brand and exhibiting in art-galleries all over the world.
He is motivated by a simple goal that resonates throughout his work: ”I hope that my work can remind us that imagination can defy gravity and bend time. It is our own responsibility to enjoy every second of the day. Nobody else can do that for us. Have fun, do what you love, love what you do. We might get thrown off this spinning ball of iron and mantle tomorrow.”
He currently lives and works in Barcelona.
