Emilio Garcia

(Spain 1981 -)


Biography

Emilio Garcia was born in the winter of 1981 near Barcelona, Spain. He has a long career trajectory as a freelance art director and visual artist. Since 1999 he has worked with such well-known international companies like Berlitz Kids, Hitachi, Diesel, Inditex, Metro, Vans, and The North Face among others specializing in motion graphics and multimedia content. His work is published in Taschen Favourite Websites and Web Design Index Books.

Emilio, concerned with the digitalization of our society, saw his culture moving slowly away from the tangible. In reaction to this, he left his multimedia career and embraced the tactile. Drawn to the fascination of plastic, he started a new stage with the Secret Lapo Laboratories, a space for plastic experimentation, where he can give capacity to his artistic restlessness, far away from bits, clicks, databases, and scripts. Out of this desire to make a form with his own hands, the Jumping Brain viral was born. As his first independent project, the Jumping Brain has become an overnight sensation.
