Known for his contemporary style, mixed media artist Pako Pablos is recognized internationally for his stylistic approach by industry and social icons.
Originally from Guadalajara, Mexico, Pablos showed an early interest in artisanship, winning awards in state youth art shows for his drawings and paintings. Growing up, his career initially focused on his talents in basketball, playing in tournaments until after college, eventually becoming a center and power forward for his country on the National team. Following his athletic career, he moved on to do print and runway modeling before eventually choosing to pursue his true passion for the arts.
His work has been featured internationally in art shows and exhibitions; on film, television and in print media; and through growing prominence in his social media following.
With the incorporation of augmented reality (AR) to his work, Pako quickly gained recognition as an innovator who bridged art and technology to create striking visuals in both fine art and digital animation. He has since attracted the attention of major media outlets by being one of the few artists in the world by successfully applying this technology commercially, incorporating it with his own clothing brand and collaborations with high end athletes and celebrities besides his interactive exhibitions.
Beyond the art itself, his passion is promoting art education and supporting artistic endeavors for young people around the world. He has donated pieces of his works to support children’s charities and organizations supporting art education and continues his outreach efforts throughout the United States, Mexico and Europe. He now lives and works in Hidden Meadows, CA, drawing and painting in his mountain studio overlooking the Pacific ocean just outside of San Diego.
