Looking through illustrator Camilo Huinca’s work is like waking up in the morning and discovering it’s surprisingly sunny. Each image is rich with colour and content and has brightly illustrated narrative that speaks for itself.
Born and raised in Santiago in Chile, Camilo has divided his career between graphic design and painting. Working independently has allowed Camilo to “develop my own style, having a main focus on the use of curiosity,” he explains. In 2014 Camilo set up Perfe Studio where he concentrates on graphic design projects in “a more commercial way”.
However within illustration he says his main motivation is “to be able to generate a communication method based on simplicity and synthesis, with few tools and colours". “I am interested in identifying people’s behaviour, portraying activities, intimate moments, body gestures, disfiguring objects and reducing the amount of detail in a composition.” In terms of content Camilo is fascinated by everyday scenes, moments and personal habits. His pieces depict scenic bus routes, art galleries and public figures in his own psychedelically shaped style. “Within my work I try to reproduce real moments from an innocent and impartial perspective.”
