About Quiralta

Hola, my name is R. J. Quiralta, I am a Mexican self-educated creator of traditional and digital art. (by sefl-educated, I mean a have no formal education of any kind beyond high school) I’m in a constant pursue of the skills that can deliver Art. I’ve been drawing since I can remember, but it is just in the last years of my life that I decided to focus on my own abilities in order to create content that would hopefully transmit the message of aesthetics from my mind to those who kindly see my work.

I’ve been influenced since I was a kid by Japanese Anime, although it wasn’t until much later that I understood it as part of the Japanese Pop and Traditional Culture. I do feel attracted to eastern Asian cultures in general, which are nowadays the motor of Pop Culture and Fashion, with traits of the old and historic, its to me a fountain of constant inspiration. Also as a kid I got to enjoy a few comics and books with western style illustrations, American, Mexican and European, which ultimately has define in part my traditional craft styles.

Open Source Software is the platform of my choice. I think it is the basis of a better computing habits and education in general, to me, philosophically it is the fundamentals for the freedom of knowledge.

 

Personally I am as common as any one can be, I am an old ugly guy with a beautiful and awesome family (wife + two kids), besides graphics (Drawing, Painting, Digital Painting, Calligraphy, etc.) I also like Wood Carving, Paper Crafting, Clay modeling, Genealogy (one of my most successful hobbies), watch Anime/Manga, Korean variety shows, I’m vegetarian and I like to eat Indian Food, Bean Tacos, Japanese Dango, Imagawayaki, Red bean buns, and lotslots of sweet bread and pastries!
