Elliot Tupac: Made in Peru

Elliot Tupac is a street artist and graphic designer originally from Lima, Peru, whose typographic work has vibrantly colored walls and covers of prestigious publications. Elliot’s work is influenced by the culture of Chicha, which is is a fusion of Cumbia with Andean huayno and rock beats. But it’s more than music, it’s a culture and an art. Elliot started to design posters for his father’s business at the young age of 11. He never really liked plain old advertising, so he began to distort fonts. He uses fluorescent colors inspired by Andean colored skirts and textiles.

You can see more of his art here: http://www.facebook.com/elliottupac.pe and also know more about him here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWQMtliEJJQ&feature=player_embedded

He’s incredibly talented and for me, one of the best poster makers in the world.  If you have the privilege to live in Peru, please go to his next event and visit his gallery: https://www.facebook.com/events/341678712591452/
