« The Peruvian culture, flora and fauna inspire me. In my works, I interpret these elements in a modern context »
Armin Essert aka Nasca, a German artist with Peruvian roots, was born in Munich in 1992. He has been living in Berlin and working as a freelance artist as well as illustrator since 2015.
Creativity as a passion
Even as a child, Armin always held a pen in his hand. He was inspired by American comics, reproduced them and invented his own characters. Constantly on the lookout for creative expression, he studied media design in Munich and received a bachelor's degree in communication design in 2016. Back then, he created characters from Peruvian culture inspired by his roots and numerous trips to South America.Lire la suite
South American culture and mythology
Armin Nasca uses spray paint and acrylic paint to create touching imagery of South American culture and mythology. His pictures show, among others, the "Pacha Mama," Mother Earth, who is still worshiped as the almighty goddess. In addition, the Uakari, a highly endangered monkey species of the Amazon, is a recurrent theme in Armin Nasca's works. His pictures are frighteningly real, they reflect the beauty, sensitivity and vulnerability of the flora and fauna in South America and strike a spot in the viewer's heart. Melancholy, awe, sadness or hope - it is left up to the viewer to decide.
A young talent climbing up the ladder
Armin Nasca regularly gets booked for large wall murals by private and institutional clients and agencies. Among others, he created images for Adidas, MarcCain and the online bank N26. The Berlin Urban Contemporary Art Museum "Urban Nation" also hired the artist, as did the Dutch Street Art Museum "Street Art Today".
His hitherto rare works on canvas are rapidly finding buyers and he has built up his own fanbase, especially in Berlin."Masquer
