Oscar Gimenez was almost genetically forced to be an illustrator. Both his father and uncle were graphic designers/illustrators and worked at home, so he grew up in an unhealthy atmosphere of ink and paint odours, photolithographs and tight deadlines. Although he had always loved drawing, he initially refused to follow their steps and went on search for a life of stability and fresh air. However, after trying many other un-fulfilling jobs and becoming a frustrated artist, he finally decided to follow the call of the blood. No regrets since then. His work is now represented in Spain, France, the UK and the USA.
