Javier Pérez: Creation of Minimalism Drawing with Real-Life Objects

Most people view cartoon and animation as children’s recreation. However, as the definition of art becomes broader , people started to make art in many different forms by mixing many elements in the piece. Cartoon and animation are no longer just appreciated by children. Javier Pérez creates his arts by combining cartoon drawing with real-life objects. Javier is a graphic designer based in Guayaqui, Ecuador. Influenced by cartoons and animation, he loved to draw many fun characters when he was a child. He then continued his passion and became a graphic designer. By incorporating daily used objects and food in his simplistic drawings, he makes the drawings more creative and alive. His art works are not just for children, but for people who seek novice perspective and creative imagination of art.


Tell me your story. How long have you been an artist?

When I was a child I drew all the time like all kids. I watch a lot of cartoons to see the style.

I created many characters and comics, then I sold them to my family.

I don’t consider myself an artist. I’m obsessed to create in many different ways.

How do you define your personal aesthetic and style and how do you apply it in art?

My work is very simple and minimal. I want the person to take a break from the saturation of the photos in general.


How do you find inspiration?

Everything in the world catches my attention. On the other hand, I’m always looking for new trends in illustration and design. I always follow my intuition to create. Nevertheless, I don’t expect my work to be always accepted by people. Furthermore, I don’t think we should look for inspiration, it could come from anything and anywhere, all you have to do is to pay attention.

Have you met any difficulties during the process?

It’s very difficult to create with food. Generally I throw out the food because I touch it a lot. I love to keep all the objects I use.


Which artists have influenced you, and how did they influence your thinking and creation?

Red Yong Yi, Brock Davis.

Could you tell me a significant new trend that it is emerging, and how do you see it evolving?

I think the new trend is to be more simple and clear with the message.



So what does the future hold for you; what is next?

I want to create another book. Actually I have one published in Barcelona (Spain) called “Dibujamos el Mundo.”
