ARTE ARTE ARTE #44 CARLIN DIAZ
Carlin was born in Caracas, Venezuela. From mother lawyer and father accountant, the first vision about his profesional career was far away from the visual arts. Around the age of 15 he started to skate and be submerged by that culture. He remembers watching on repite skate videos from Habitat and paying a lot of attention to the graphics of the Toy Machine and Habitat decks. Ed Templeton and Joe Castrucci have been the major influences to encourage him in the graphic arts.
6 years later from that he finished his studies at the Instituto de Diseño de Caracas, also, the political/economic situation in the country began to going down, so he decided to move to Paris and start making animations.
It’s been almost 6 years here in Paris and his activity has been developing, now he's enjoying his time between illustration, painting and directing animation films.
