Pablo Jurado. Ilustraciones puntillistas


En los últimos años estamos viendo cómo las técnicas manuales comienzan a hacerse más presentes en los portfolios creativos, dejando así de lado lo exclusivamente digital. De este modo, nos encontramos con numerosos artistas que utilizan únicamente tintas, lápices e incluso tizas como método de expresión. Pablo Jurado Ruiz es uno de estos artistas que recurre a la técnica impresionista del puntillismo o stippling para ilustrar sus retratos. Se inspira principalmente en la representación de la figura humana a través de la cual muestra la vida, el amor, la infancia, el desengaño y la naturaleza mediante miradas y gestos.


With a creative concept based primarily on human representation, I try to tell stories through a minimalist and subtle vision. My current work is focuses on a simple but realistic drawing and worked in an impressionist technique, complex and very accurate as pointillism or stippling art. I like to talk about love, disappointment, nature, childhood… and I show it in a glance, a gesture or a detail as if it were a metaphor of life.
Since childhood I liked to express my ideas with pencil and paper. Markers, paintings, tales and comics filled my world. At an early age I discover the European and American comics of the 80s and 90s and my first references as Milo Manara or Moebius. Later studying art history, painting captivates me with artists like Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Georges Pierre Seurat, Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso… all these influences coexist in my training and vision of art.
I began my studies at the School of Arts and Crafts in Malaga and after discovering the graphic design and advertising, I graduated in “techniques and methods of design.”
I leave my hometown and spend a few years living in Anchorage (Alaska) and Manchester (UK) to finally return to Spain and settle me in Madrid where I live and work as Creative Director.”
