Juan Gatti Has Got It

Argentine born Juan Gatti calls himself a graphic designer, humble enough to make no bones about creating for pay. But an artist he is, first and foremost - as all really good graphic designers must be. His talented eye has graced many areas of pop culture - Italian Vogue covers in the 1980’s, typography and graphics for Pedro Almodóvar's films and multitudes of posters and book covers.

"A good title sequence should be seductive," observes Gatti. "It should have a hypnotic quality that gets the audience into the mood of the movie."

His new exhibit in Madrid is titled Ciencia Naturales. Full of lush, tapestried collage work, mixing vintage  human anatomy with natural forms. Showing through October 28th. To see all Juan’s magnificent works at La Fresh Gallery, click here, you’ll be entranced by the slideshow.
