Paco Raphael

“Everything has already been said and done somewhere in human history. It’s about the core and origins of styles”. Photography is the main ingredient of Paco’s work. The Dutch Artist Paco Raphael finds the images through frequent travels with a photo camera.

His love for the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s is the most important source of inspiration: Old cinema, Typography, Graphic art, Fashion, Architecture and Music. They are subtly amalgamated into contemporary works with an international character and style: typical Urban American.

The artworks of Paco are used for all kinds of objects, wall decoration, furniture, magazines and brands. Currently his work is available in three high end galleries in the Netherlands and he has exhibitions worldwide. He is based and works in a studio in Amsterdam.
