Intro

The Fashion Atlas interviewed Spanish artist Pablo Thecuadro.
Born in 1992. From Zaragoza but he lives and works in Madrid. There’s only one thing he loves the most: to create images.

Essential but powerful collages, in which Pablo Thecuadro mixes different techniques: from the cut by hand to digital techniques.

Pablo Thecuadro collages go beyond the simply combination of beautiful images; they include the concept of duality in the human being.
His work is a deep, elegant and abstract exploration that brings back to reality, to the human essence.

Why did you chose collage as art to communicate?
Because I feel very comfortable with it. It’s a never ending process, you can put as many images you want together over and over again.

What is the concept behind your work?
The collages I make express the duality in the human being, who we want to be versus who really are and what part of us we show to others.

What inspires you?
Internet.

Which are the characteristics of your images? 
I love simple but strong pictures, a kind of ‘minimalistic’ collage.

How social media helped you, if they did, and your opinion about them?
Social media helped me completely, you can share your work and people from the other side of the world can see it and contact you to make great things.

Tell something about your latest project?
I made several collages for Nike, it’s my bigger project for now, it was very special to see my work in the stores.

Which kind of music where you listening during your latest project?
The latest album of Depeche Mode, my favourite band.

Artists you love?
Nick Knight, Inez&Vinoodh, Steven Meisel, Helmut Newton, Pierre Debusschere, Alasdais McLellan, Brianna Capozzi…

One fashion brand you would work for?
Vetements.

 

What were you doing before answering all these questions?
Breakfast!

 

Imagine a collage to represent your Country.

It would be one with the portraits of my closest friends.
