Bio

beyond-time2012 Olliemoonsta-mural-Targowo

Naza del Rosal and Juan Rico are Olliemoonsta, an art duo from Spain with a background in Fine Arts and Graphic Design. In 2009 they came together to form Studio Po, an Illustration, Graphic and Web Design studio, which was gradually focusing more on art and illustration creating the duo Olliemoonsta.

Over the years they have created a series of artworks drawing on the folklore, mysticism and spirituality of traditional cultures from around the world. They are also interested in urban tribes related to graffiti and skateboarding and put a special emphasis on typography.

Olliemoonsta’s work has been seen in numerous exhibitions around Europe and Canada. In July 2011 they were invited to the International Percussion Festival of Montreal, Canada, where Juan Rico were performing improvised paintings to the rhythm of music. Those paintings were part of a traveling exhibition in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. In 2012 they participated in the artists’ residence Beyond Time, in Poland, where in addition to their work at the BWA Bielsko Galery in Bielsko-Biala and Targowo, they participated in several festivals to paint murals. In October 2012 they were working as artists in residence at Pedra Sina Residence, in Madeira, Portugal. In 2013 they moved to Canada and in 2015 they had a solo show at the Michael Wright Gallery, in Port Coquitlam.
