Eneko

Caracas | 1963
Painter, illustrator, cartoonist. Eneko draws for newspapers since 1979.
The synthesis of forms and the emphasis on the idea of “sign” is what characterizes his pictorial approach. In his humor-oriented, politically critical graphic work he combines symbols and images always looking to produce a surprising effect.
