A picture is worth a thousand words – Juan Osborne

Ein Bild sagt mehr als tausend Worte. Juan Osborne, Architekt und Designer, mit spanischer Herkunft, zeigt in seinen Bildkompositionen erstaunliche typografische Kunstwerke.

Er lässt das Porträt, das jeweilige Bild mit Sätzen und Wörtern zu einem Kunstwerk verschmelzen. Lyrische Kompositionen, Songtexte, Filmzitate, Buchtexte werden zu Bilder. Die Visualisierung von Zeichen zu einem Bild bedarf einer akribischen und künstlerischen Genauigkeit.

When and how did you begin to see yourself as an artist?

Juan Osborne:

Well, I’m not sure if I’m an artist, a creative, an architect… I do not like too much qualifications. All I can say is that I love my work and I’m always trying to add something else to my stuff. Something that make you think, smile or surprise… So the answer is that I’m still not seeing myself as an artist!.

Please tell us more about your art and background!

Juan Osborne:

I am from El Puerto de Santa María, a city close to Cádiz in the south of Spain, but nowadays I live in Madrid. I’m forty and for the last fifteen years I have been working in retail projects for an architectural company. But I also love art, design, technology, programming, etc. So along the years I have been involved in different kind of personal crazy projects that let me free my ‚artistic‘ side.

My words illustrations are made with my own techniques and tools. I fell free creating things by my own without the limitations of any commercial application. You don’t have to think what can you do, but what do you want to do.

Your picture are work-intensive. What’s the meaning of time for you?

Juan Osborne:

I have a wife, three children, a regular job as architect, my creative works and high curiosity over a lot of different things. I try to squeeze time, but without going crazy. 🙂

That’s the reason why I’m always looking for the smarter way instead of the more laborious.

What is your next project?

Juan Osborne:

I have some ideas waiting for a little free time, but my next step will be full motion video of 3d words. It’s almost done, I will publish some samples very soon in my site. But there are other architecture related projects that may take my time in next months.

Thank you Elle!

Many thanks to you 🙂
