Paco Raphael is educated at The Hague University of Applied Sciences in Communication & Multimedia Design. As a creative in advertising, he never stopped exploring ways to improve his work and its impact on the world around him.
Working for big brand names like Philips, Renault, G-Star, Bol.com and MTV Networks he evolved into a senior online graphic designer. Still ambitious to explore more and better, he restated himself as artist, combining conventional art with digital media. In just 5 years as an artist, Paco Raphael accomplished worldwide exposure with Art Basel in Miami and solo shows in New York as a highlight.
His work is praised by art collectors and is part of the collection of three leading galleries. Pushing his limits and the limit that separates art from design, he now puts his ambition and abilities to work as an industrial designer, uniting his artwork with products. Paco Raphael shows a new approach to all that surrounds us in life, from a painting to furniture or fashion. And we doubt he’ll stop here.
