Die Kunstwerke von Robert Tirado sind ein Mix von digitalen und analogen Arbeiten, teilweise bemalt, einige Teile gezeichnet und andere Elemente fotografiert. Der talentierte Künstler aus Madrid beherrscht das Mischen und Zusammenfügen, das harmonische Farbenspiel und das Miteinfließen von geometrischen Formen. Inspirationen sind für ihn die weibliche Schönheit, Mode und die Fotografie. So werden seine künstlerischen Arbeiten zu anspruchsvollen, visuellen Kreationen.

When your interest for digital art and illustration began?
2008 was a break point in my life that brought many changes to my career. It was reflected in my work. I went from a traditional artist, to experimenting all new technologies * using photoshop and illustrator* I started to understand the computer as an important tool in my work, combined with training as a traditional artist.
Please tell us more about your art and design background and what made you become an artist and designer?
Since childhood I was always attracted to images and things related to art. One of the things that made me become an artist was the need to express feelings, convey messages or simply reflect my view of beauty through the artworks.
What’s the importance of the computer in the creative process?
Personally, I think the computer is not part of my creative process. I mean, the process starts in my head and with research. When I look at a particular image or when I hear music.
Computer is a tool that helps me to capture all those things.
Is true, many of my artworks are taken over or made ??entirely with computer, however, just another tool for me.
A couple of years ago I had some problems with my computer and I was forced to return to traditional techniques, it was comforting, because I realized that even without computer, basically, I can do the same things.
Your work is full of creativity. Where does your inspiration come from?
My sources of inspiration are very different. It depends.
Lately, I have been receiving inspirations from the streets… buildings, sculptures, pop objects and landscapes.
Perhaps that’s why I feel my work may be taking a different path. I have new projects in mind, based on new techniques for me, such as the silkscreen on paper, mixed with fabrics and color yarns.
Many thanks to Robert!
