Gastón Caba: Fun, Silly, Quirky

“I try to show contradiction and silliness just as it happens everyday in this crazy world we live.” — Gastón Caba

Please use 3 adjectives to describe your work.

Fun, Silly, Quirky.

Where do you like to draw?

I love to sketch in public transport and then clean the sketches at home.

Do you still remember your first piece of work? What made you start drawing?

I remember one that was a sun done with watercolors. I asked my mom to frame it. I guess it’s still hanging somewhere in my parent’s house.

Could you kindly explain your message behind your work?

I try to show contradiction and silliness just as it happens everyday in this crazy world we live.

Could you introduce an object on your desk that you love the most?

This is a crazy toy I bought on the market at Shanghai (the one behind the temple with tons of cheap stuff). I can’t understand the motivation behind this silly design. That’s why it’s so attractive to me.
