Leolyxxx
un artista multidisciplinar

15 January 2017 Texto: Mind The Gap.

{english below} Vive en Estocolmo, donde nació, y siempre ha sentido atracción por la imagen y el diseño gráfico. Trabaja como ilustrador/animador, y ha convertido su hobby en su trabajo. Su manera de trabajar varía mucho de un proyecto a otro, dependiendo de si lo que hace es animación, diseños para camisetas, parches o pintura, entre otras cosas.

Ahora acaba de terminar un videoclip para Jamie Lidell, con quien se puso en contacto a través de Luaka Bop Recors. El próximo proyecto que tiene en mente es hacer un libro de ilustraciones infantiles.

Se siente inspirado por cualquier cosa: las palabras, la música (tiene una enorme colección de discos), el cine, caminar, la naturaleza…

LEOLYXXX

He grew up in Stockholm, Sweden, where he still lives. “I guess my background is a genuine love for graphics so much so that I want to do them myself”, says.

He works as an illustrator/animator, it’s a great and varied line of work. “Having your main hobby as your job has lots of perks so as long as I feel I’m producing quality stuff, I’m really happy”, explains.

His working methods and the process varies so much between projects, a lot of his graphics are done for textile prints, animations, shirts, paintings, etc. so he has different angles: “If I’m working with a customer I like to ask a lot of questions early on, so I get a good view of what should be done and how to do it right”.

Right now he has finished a music video for Jamie Lidell who he recently got in contact with through his buddy Eric at Luaka Bop records. For the future, he says: “I would like to see myself develop childrens books, I have a few sketches in the pipeline that I really want to get done eventually”.

He is inspiring by anything: words, music, movies, walks, nature or whatever. “It’s more a frame of mind rather than specific things, anything can be inspiring if you see it with the right eyes”, expresses.

“Music is huge for me, I’m a die hard collector of records so it varies from minute to minute. At this point it’s Superior Elevation ‘sassy lady’, a record I will probably never own but I will try to, he adds.
