alvaro p ffÁLVARO P-FF (Madrid, Spain, 1973)

After studying communications, he began his career working for Disney and at several different design and advertising agencies until he and his brother, photographer Juan Pérez-Fajardo, decided to open their own design studio, The Fly Factory.

His illustrations and designs, always related to music, have led to collaborations with artists like Sabina, Bunbury, Pablo Alborán, Calamaro, L.A., M-Clan and Los Coronas in Spain, and Lana del Rey, The Long Ryders, Redd Kross, Jayhawks, Green Day, Lucinda Williams and many others on the international scene.

With a unique blend of 1980s street culture, 1990s American poster art and nods to the language of modernism and Art Deco, Álvaro Pérez-Fajardo has forged a powerful and unmistakeably distinctive style with a ubiquitous presence at virtually every major music event in Spain today.

In 2014 he began to produce his own artwork, with great commercial success, continuing to draw on his trademark methods and influences but revelling in the total freedom of doing and creating whatever he wants.

Description

“Tu mete en un Mustang del 72 a Marc Bolan, a los Stones y a MC5, pisa el acelerador y lánzalo contra un muro. Lo que saldría de ahí serían The New York Dolls. Hard rock de purpurina y heroína, actitud de barrio y amaneramiento de prostituta, 100% riffs vacilones. Chulos, grotescos y geniales los Dolls crearon un circulo de seguidores incondicionales en New York, que a pesar de su a priori escaso potencial comercial, propiciaron su primer contrato discográfico en 1973 (disco homónimo producido por Todd Rundgreen). El grupo de Johnny Thunders y David Johansen tomaron el Max´s Kansas City (mítico local rival del también mítico CBGB) durante 5 noches como cuartel general para desplegar todo su repertorio de chulería, provocación y buen rock delante de gente como Debbie Harry, Dee Dee Ramone o Richard Hell que recibieron el último empujón para crear la escena punk de New York pocos años más tarde. No habrías matado por estar ahí?” Alvaro P-FF
