Hi! I'm Javier Pérez Estrella, a digital artist from Guayaquil, Ecuador.  I have a fascination with the intricacies of everyday life, and desire to capture and connect with them led to a number of creative endeavors during my childhood years. I created: comic strips, magazines, wallets, toys, and homemade TV productions.
Creations came to a halt following the tragic death of my father. I was forced to grow up quickly and help carry the load of my family’s finances. Pain and stress stifled his desire to create, but luckily my creative block was temporary. A few years later, I dove back into the graphic design scene full force, gaining international and local recognition with my project "Instagram Experiments"
I'm focus has always been on harnessing a childlike intensity and creativity within my artwork. I look at the world through a youthful lens, finding beauty and excitement in everyday objects often overlooked by the average adult.
I describe my illustration style as minimalist, and pulls inspiration from illustrator Marta Altés, as well as surrealists Salvador Dalí and Renee Magritte. Exploring and combining different mediums, such as stop-motion animation, helps me to bring pieces to life.
The minimalist aesthetic of my work is a revolution against the oversaturated nature of today’s world. My goal is to reunite viewers with my inner child enabling them to view the world, and common objects within it, in different ways.
