Graduated in 2010 from the Higher Institute of Design in Havana, Juan Carlos Polo Chaviano works in the creative group Proyecto Espacios Cuba. Juan Carlos shows great interest in illustration as an efficient communication tool and explores its significance of the two-dimensional frame and conventional scales and its use in interior design, blacksmithing, furniture customization and product development. Distilling stories into minimalist explosions of colour, he is constantly seeking opportunities to allow images to speak volume. Juan Carlos’s work emphasizes composition to convey emotion and encode information. The bright illustrations of astronauts, monsters and entities from other planets often evoke an anxious feel and questions whilst maintaining softness and elegance.
Acronte is a creature-ecosystem. A complex organism made up of different beings that live in an intimate and coordinated association, allowing them to be more adaptable and efficient. It inhabits the underground seas of Mars.
