Born in Barcelona, Spain, Oscar Gimenez was almost genetically forced to be an illustrator. Both his father and uncle were graphic artists and worked at home, so he grew up in an unhealthy atmosphere of ink and paint odours, photolithographs and tight deadlines. Although he had always loved drawing, he initially refused to follow in their footsteps and went on a search for a life of stability and fresh air. However, after trying many other unfulfilling jobs and becoming a frustrated artist, he finally decided to follow the call of the blood. No regrets since then. His work is now represented in Spain, Germany, the UK and the USA and he´s managed to live a pretty healthy life.
