CARLOS VELASCO REGUERO (Madrid-1978),auroretrato 1

Estudio Arquitectura en Madrid

Interesado desde pequeño en el mundo de la pintura y el dibujo, sus experiencias se limitaron no obstante a un contacto continuo como aficionado al dibujo y a esporádicas implicaciones mas relevantes como fundación y participación activa en los comienzos del colectivo No Az dedicado a la reivindicación política y social en un contexto urbano, empleando stencils y otras herramientas y participando en diferentes exposiciones como invitados.

No fue hasta su traslado a Ibiza en 2005 que su dedicación e investigación en el mundo de la pintura ha ido ocupando parcelas mas importantes de su tiempo, a raíz de su interés por el graffiti y la acción urbana, pintando por Ibiza y participando en alguna exhibición de arte urbano, en una de ellas contacta con  una galería importante de la isla y prepara en 2007 su primera exposición individual, este evento se convertirá en el detonante del interés por explorar nuevas vías de expresión en la pintura.

Después de esto se suceden diferentes exposiciones en Ibiza, Formentera, Berlín, Basilea y Lugano, así como numerosos trabajos como retratista o ilustrador para periódicos, revistas, cartelería etc.

Interesado en cualquier otra disciplina que implique el dibujo o la pintura, ahora está trabajando en un comic, tatuajes y un videoclip.

En la actualidad prosigue con su evolución y desarrollo artístico, planteándose nuevas retos y proyectos tanto dentro como fuera de la isla.

Studied architecture inMadrid.

Despite having a interest in painting and drawing from a very young age, his experience was mainly confined to drawing as a hobby, with sporadic periods of deeper commitment such as when he became co-founder and active member in its early days of the NoAz artist collective, an urban-based political and socially committed group characterized by their work with stencils in addition to guesting at several exhibitions showing samples of their work.

It wasn´t until his move to ibiza in 2005 that his commitment and further exploration in the sphere of painting began to take up increasingly significant amounts of his time. 

With his interest in graffiti and roots in urban activities, he took part in urban art exhibitions and competitions. It was a result of one of these, that one one of the island´s most prominent gallery contacted him and in 2007 he held his first individual exhibition. This event was to provide him the impetus to explore new forms of expression in his painting.

He had realized difference exhibitions in Ibiza, Formentera, Berlín, Basilea y Lugano as well as several works as an illustrator or draftsman for newspapers, magazines and commercials.

His interest in any field related to drawing and painting has currently gotten him involved in several tattoo, comic and videoclip animation projects.

He continues to develop and grow artistically and currently has a number of new challenges and projects in the offing both in Ibiza and elsewhere.
