WOW – Manuel Griñón Montes


Listen to a nice record, enjoy the sunshine after a rainy day, jump waves and take a walk through the countryside. Draw, paint, design, play, build, collaborate with other people and learn from your surroundings. Have fun and never let money make you forget your passions.

Manuel Griñón Montes, 2013

Illustrator, Designer, Visual Artist and founder of PINCEL

Studied: Graphic Design, Arte10 School, Madrid

The work of Manuel Griñón Montes, which shifts between drawing, painting and illustration, is made with different medium – paper, wood, found objects – and techniques – felt tip, acrylic, photography… For the last few years he has been working in both commercial and artistic projects, which has lead him to work for top creative agencies, design studios and brands, win a few art and design prizes, and show his artwork in galleries, events and museums around Europe. With an art and design background and passion for D.I.Y and all things handmade Manuel runs PINCEL, a sign writing and mural painting project, and together with Raquel Estrada-Nora they run Jerseys para los Monos, an art publishing house. He is also a member of Tronquis art collective, and plays music with two of his friends in the punk-folk band Montañas.
