Interview by Javier Melian for www.thepalettepages.com
I am Javier Melian (@jmelianuk on Twitter). Foremost I am an art lover that twits about street art and outsider artist mainly. Let me introduce you to this extraordinary character and really
funny man.- artist Diego Vera-Aguilar, aka Keko. I love all his work, but especially his incredibly realistic portraits made with ink pen. Please check them out!
Keko was born in
Barcelona in 1977 and currently lives in Badalona, a lovely coastal town nearby. He studied Fine Arts, illustration and graphic design and in early 2000 he
started a partnership called Anhima interactive, an advertising studio where he was in charge of design and illustration. In 2002 he joined Anera Films, an animation company based in Barcelona,
as an illustrator and animator for children’s series.
