Zeptiror (Raúl Castellanos), San Sebastián, Guipúzcoa, Spain, 1980

He defines himself as a freak cartoonist. Although he was born in San Sebastian, he has been living in Madrid for years, where he was trained as a computer programmer, but he abandoned those studies to work as a drawing professional to unleash his natural talent. Start by doing design work with characters and coloring funds for various producers, such as Zinkia or Imira Entertaitment among others.

He has collaborated as an illustrator for different projects on multiple platforms. He has designed and drawn some board games for Edge, such as Rock Band Manager or one of the versions of the game Fluxx. He has also participated in the creation of some video games for several years for Bitoon Games and some independent production companies. He is currently producing a series of limited-edition figures with 6ForestToys with his own designs, thus joining his love for toys and drawing.

Although he continues to collaborate with different companies, he has spent the last few years producing his own graphic material in which he explores different media, such as painting on canvas or wood, or muralism and collage, and has managed to find a specific and identifying visual language that adapts to multiple supports.

As a result of this artistic development he has participated in group exhibitions in Area3, Ephimera, Aktivität and Dynamite Gallery, having his first individual exhibition in February of 2020, at La Fiambrera Art Gallery.

Always present in his work, of great color and dynamism, his fondness for science fiction, tokusatsu, apocalyptic worlds, comics, graffiti, reptiles and insects, Mythology, folklore and anything that has to do with robots and giant monsters that destroy cities and planets.

 

Description

The notion of the essence of evil being manifested in the female form is as old as history itself. From Eve, who stands accused of ruining what could have been an eternal idyllic existence or Pandora, custodian of a box that contained all the evils of humanity that she just couldn’t help herself but to open in order to spread those ills across the world. That could be considered mean. Or just plain bad. As Lux Interior of The Cramps once warned us “All Women Are Bad”.

There are no more mean gods or humans portrayed in popular culture and beyond than the female of the species. The bad girl is engraved in the consciousness as myth and continues to be represented by combining fear and terror with fascination and attraction.

La Fiambrera celebrates its FIFTH anniversary and the arrival of 2020 with a traditional annual group show that celebrates the bad girl. Thirty international artists bring together the strongest , most feared, most hated yet cool characters that inhabit this universe. Some well known meanies such as Maleficent, Bette Davis, Cruella DeVille and The Queen of Hearts rub evil shoulders with new figures created specifically for this special occasion by the twisted minds of their creators.

Roll up and feast your eyes on these dangerous but captivating dames. You know you want to.
