Gos #1. Golden boy – Francisco Bustos

Why did you pick this picture?

Cause is the first one of my new project called GOSSOS just focused on dog portraits and one of my favorites pieces so far since I began this journey of doing what really gives me satisfaction in life.

Where did the idea for this art come from?

It came from searching a way to express myself trough a certain kind of own artwork. I’ve always loved dogs and so does people here where I’m living right now, Barcelona. So basically, it was to make a series of portraits and the urgency of paying my rent too.

What does this art mean to you?

Means a new way to maintain my connection with dogs mostly. I’m from Chile, where there’re a lot of street and abandoned dogs, they’re everywhere and are very friendly and approachable but there’s no government control on them. They suffer a lot too. Here dogs have passport to travel so the difference is huge.

What can you tell us about yourself?

I’m 30, I quit my dead-end job few years ago to do what makes me happy and now I’m living in Barcelona . A city with a lot of opportunities for artistic expression.

What more can you tell us about your art?

I like high contrasts and luminance in what I do. Also when it comes to character drawings, most of them are very complex psychologically, like the anti heroe kind. Im always interested in those fields, mind and behavior.
