Pepo Moreno X Carne Bollente collaboration. Made in Portugal with love.
Pepo Moreno was born in Spain in the last years of what we now call the Millennial Generation. He grew up drawing at his hometown in the countryside and spent his young adulthood flirting with a singer career while pursuing a BA in Communication and Advertising.
Today Pepo lives in Paris, and his paintings have grown to become both a mock and a celebration of gay stereotypes in Western pop culture. On the superficial –the aesthetics–, his work explores a myriad of saturated colours using different variations of acrylic painting tech- niques. Deep down –at heart– it embraces some of the contradictions of the modern queer life experience: from the sheer gayness of being out, proud and simply alive, to the forever young, forever beautiful obsession that often hides the loneliness and isolation of being an outcast. (Text by Vicente Ferrer)
It’s been a long time we wanted to collaborate with Pepo, we simply love everything what is doing.This is the first artist we meet who has exactly the same vision as us of a humor that can subtly turn into activist. We proposed him to create a slogan that would highlight some contemporary theme such as consent. He also offered us this kinky cow-boy and these happy flowers that we could not refuse.
