Oscar Llorens has worked with international media such as The Washington Post and Fauve World, as well as corporate organizations such as Coca-Cola, the United Nations, and Cirque du Soleil for over 15 years. This commercial illustration work is complemented by freelance work in plastic art, with solo and group exhibitions in Madrid, Barcelona, Paris, New York and Mexico City. Inspired by all aspects of life, Llorens’ paintings are sometimes full of vibrant colors, with a touch of quirky and cartoonish imagery, and sometimes in plain or faded black and white. As fluid as he is between these two styles, he is skilled in traditional hand-drawn techniques as well as digital tools.
Llorens’ childhood fantasies were inspired by Japanese anime, such as Gatchaman, Mazinger Z, and Ulysses 31, until the age of 14, when he was introduced to the animated legend, Cyberpunk’s classic Akira. Akira” at the age of 14. In this vein, he did not hesitate to choose Tokyo as the land of creative fervor, and appropriated a large number of well-known Japanese anime characters such as Totoro, Atomic King Kong, Hello Kitty, etc., as a copy and interpretation of Tokyo’s rhapsodic journey.
