Digital. modern. Creative.

Art Director, Illustrator and Character Designer who is currently living in Spain and working with renowned influencers and celebrities such as Yes Theory, Jordan Taylor Wright, Will Smith and Charlie «Rocket» Jabaley. I also created content with renowned brands such as Headspace Studios, Mc Donalds, Coca-Cola, Blue Sky Studios and Marvel.

Beauty and culture

I’m working on a unique art collection that explores the history, beauty, color, harmony & feelings through the most famous paintings of all time. 

Looking at a beautiful painting, or staring up at a huge, awe-inspiring sculpture, we’re often left struggling for words. These personal and emotional experiences are hard to express in language. But many people, both artists and non-artists, have managed to put words together that seem to capture this amazing, inexpressible feeling.

«Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.» – Edgar Dega

Everywhere with my Apple.

All my work is done on the Apple iPad Pro (12.9-inch) supercharged by the Apple M1 chip that is the fastest device of its kind. It’s designed to take full advantage of next‑level performance and custom technologies like the advanced image signal processor and unified memory.

“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.” – Henry Ward Beecher

Always together.

"Santiago's always been an amazing artist in never-stopping progression to excellence, always searching something new to learn and apply to his super appealing art. There's something in his drawings, a kind of careful and full-of-deep-love approach to humankind, so delicate, that it's special in his art. I'd absolutely recommend everyone to have a look at his stuff and i wish him all the best in his projects to come."
