Turn up the dial on happy and crazy: Alba Blázquez from Madrid

Imagination is the highest form of research! Alba Blázquez is a young artist, illustrator with a potent and magnetic imagination. Her playful imagery is rooted in satire and social comedy, sounding off the turmoils of city life: the humor, bewilderment and sometimes ridiculousness of urban lifestyles. Real life contains its inevitable lousy bits, but the only way through the heartaches, tribulations and loneliness is to endure it with an upbeat tone (and pizza). Her work is invigorating, high-powered and infectiously happy! We love the constant galactic imagery, it brings to our attention that no matter how dark, the galaxy outshines our problems on Earth.

Alba started her career as a photographer but quickly discovered that illustration is a quicker and surefire way of documenting the curious and bustling happenings in her mind.

What a fantastic, wild and curious imagination! The world belongs to the energetic. Turn the dial up on happy and crazy!
