My name is Jaume Montserrat and I am from Barcelona, where I still living. I’m graduated as a Technical arts applied to wall on Escola Massana (Barcelona) after six months on the Hanze University Fine Arts (Netherlands) as an exchange student, and now I’m studying Illustration on Barcelona, waiting for february, when I will move to Czhec Republic for other six months. I do illustrations for magazines, mural painting and tattoo’s, but I also love traveling and participate in a volunteer project – I’ve been coordinator on an association for people with mental and physical disabilities and monitor on a volunteer project in Marroc, Africa.
I always loved draw, and I used to do it combining with regular jobs, until I decide that it could be my real job.
What does art and design means to you?
It is very important to me as it’s an outlet for my creativity and mind, I’d go crazy if a couldn’t draw.Arts give me back what reallity destroys. For me art – as music, cinema or poetry – is the meaning of Hope.
How would you define your personal style?
I complex pattern making mess that ends up being something quite structural.
What is the process of your work? What kind of materials do you use?
I love travelling, animals and nature, and this are most of the times the subjets of my works. Once I’m drawing, i like focussing on the detail, so I get into the draw, that’s why most of the time I use photographs.
How do you get your inspiration?
I try to found it everywhere I go. In any movie I watch, in any book I read. I think that art and inspiration are on the perspective of the artist most than everywhere else.
What are your most critical challenges in your work?
I think I'm a too perfectionist and critical of my own work, so sometimes I think that some project it’s not interesting enought to start it.
What are some of your goals?
To travel more, to draw more and better and enjoy.
What s your dream?
I would love to have an orchard that provides me everything I could need for eat. With a lot of music Lp’s, Movies, books.. and drawing without a purpose, just for fun but always sharing it everywhere I could
What is your motto in your work and life?
Search what you love to do, and do it until you are god on it. Then keep it doing.
