This is the first summary of “Live by Artists” by Proyecto Ensamble.
Born in Chillan, one of the cities in Chile, he is an illustrator and currently also a tattoo artist, Jko Sánchez participated in the series “I Need your Skull” 2014.
He graduated in graphic design in 2011 but has experimented with illustration since 2009, developing his style that he defines as “abstract vectors working in the digital environment.” Finally, he compiles this experimental material in his book “Nada”, poetry and illustration, published in 2013.
While in Chile, he worked for 3 years as a graphic designer at Maui and Sons, where all the contacts that he make there subsequently became his clients in graphic design. Then during 2015 he decided to travel to South America. During this period he visited tattoo studios in Bolivia, Peru and Colombia, where he learned to tattoo. And in his travel book he tells about the transition between digital illustration and his current work, which reflects the influence of the art of tattoos and Colombian mythology. It is released with basic and simple drawings to move to more complex creations that include animals and typical themes of this art. Thanks to this, from 2016 to date, he moves to live in Colombia, installs the tattoo studio where he works with some friends, and also still works as a graphic designer independently.
