Artist Spotlight : Mau Lencinas
Mau Lencinas is an Argentinian born illustrator and animator currently based out of Buenos Aires.
Born in 1991, Mau’s signature style heads the wave of unique and forward-thinking illustrators, design and graffiti that can be found in the busy South American city.
His unique illustrations center on red-skinned characters that appear to be a blend of Japanese anime and asian features, decked in fashions that can be described as 90’s label-loving hip-hop style meets futuristic techno gangster.
Through Lencinas’ use of a particular look that is difficult to categorize, he evokes imagery that is both futuristic and yet very nostalgic at the same time. Furthermore, they make his work instantly recognizable.
