What's in a name...
cosas hermosas is not simply a brand. The name was born in June 2021, out of sheer necessity to create a home for my projects and creative pursuits.
cosas, or "things," seemed to fit well for the amount of random mediums I'd dabbled into—digital art, painting, film photography, tattoo design, merch—among others.
hermosas, or "beautiful," is more of a jest, or challenge to the traditional definition of the word. My definition of beauty is an abstract one, and my art attempts to exemplify this.
Hi, my name is Cameron, and I like to make things.
Born and raised in Southern California, my artwork never seems to let me forget that. Inspired from the remanence of the 60s and 70s surf/skate culture that permeates through present day Southern CA, my artistic style latches on to bright colors, psychedelic landscapes, and retro graphics. In conjunction with the Mexican influence that lies under the surface of the entire state, my artwork encapsulates a vibe that is undeniably a representation of who I am, and where I came from, even though I am no longer there.
In fall of 2021 I moved to Bilbao, where I am currently based. Although different in just about every aspect, the Basque Country has become another place to call home, and congruently has become a new source of inspiration to create.
Thank you for supporting my artwork and creative projects. Here's to the pursuit of "beautiful" things.
