1. How was Ciudades dibujadas born?

Ciudades dibujadas was born in Havana. The first draws of a known, close urban environment came out the neighborhood, with all the elements that make up our image of the city. You see them every day, you walk by, and when you sit down and “think” of a city the first to appear is this, the immediate. I was always interested in architecture, I think that the concern of vision at a scale beyond the object should have come out somehow in each draw.

1. There are always referents that mark our perceptions and creations, what artists or designers have influenced your vision as a creative?

When I got my university course in design I didn’t know what it was about, the only thing I liked was the plastic arts. Life took me along that way and when I began my University studies at ISDI I started to be familiar with design.  At the beginning Miriam Abreu, the professor of the subject Basic Design in the first semester, was a very important person, she helped me to see design with an artistic view.
