It felt as if one’s entire world was one long, Sunday afternoon. Nothing to do. Nowhere to go. Lev Tchistovsky

Conjuring Monsters with @dominicqwek

Dominic Qwek’s (@dominicqwek) days and nights are filled with monsters — and he wouldn’t have it any other way. “Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been fascinated by monsters and scary-looking aliens,” Dominic says. Born in Singapore, Dominic, who’s 35, now lives with his wife (an artist and occasional creative collaborator) in Southern California, where he’s a character designer for the video game company Blizzard Entertainment. Inspired by the unforgettable creatures that slithered and munched their way through so many classic sci-fi thrillers, especially the Alien and Predator films, Dominic spent countless hours when he was younger filling notebooks with drawings of nightmarish, oddly beautiful beasts. Today, working with advanced software as well as old-school modeling techniques and 3-D printers, he designs eye-popping creatures for popular video games (Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, and others) and for his own amusement — including the ultra-freaky inhabitants of what he calls a “holistic universe of crazy alien warriors.” In the end, Dominic seems at peace delving ever deeper into the darker realms of his own imagination. “Being in a career like this requires a lot of passion,” he says. “I can’t imagine someone who doesn’t love monsters doing this for a living.”

“The script refers to the angel as a her and that’s what I do. I think she has feminine qualities, but she’s not totally a woman either. And that’s okay. I like characters that keep you guessing.” - Doug Jones as the Angel of Death [x] Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008) dir. Guillermo del Toro
All has began in 2007, bringing a spectacularly lucid splash of Mediterranean colour to the streets of Valencia and wider Spain, Pichi and Avo have infused a stunning level of figurative detail into their work. Hints of surrealism leap out and slap the viewer about while drawing you into a radiant explosion of unrestrained, spray painted talent. Creating a massive stir in their hometown and just about to set the rest of Europe ablaze, leads them to participate in numerous national and international events. Pichi & Avo are one, fleeing the egocentrism of graffiti and come together to give birth a single work, two similar visions of the world are a result of their work. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
