Javier Arrés is a world-renowned motion / GIF artist and a 2019 London Art Biennale winner based in Motril, Spain. Arrés finds inspiration within the sweeping views from his childhood home overlooking his hometown and the beautiful architecture within it.

Arrés is known for his manically detailed illustrations of fantastical scenery highlighting cities, architecture and machines. He brings these worlds to life through what he calls “Visual Toys”. Through these Visual Toys, Arres invites the viewer into a fantastical world, inspiring the viewer to simply play with their imaginations. These “Visual Toys” are highly sought after and sell at record speeds and prices.

Arrés’ undeniably distinct artwork style sets him apart in the seemingly saturated world of digital art. It is unlike most have ever seen or imagined, and ignites our inner child, or perhaps engineer.

The Cool Glasses

Cool Glasses is an extension, expansion and reflection on the design, idea, function and concept of one of the most magical accessories of culture, fashion and science of humanity: Glasses.

They can be an element of vision, virtual reality, concealment, protection, espionage, an identity and differentiating accessory that is part of your personality and image. They provide something personal, a seductive touch, a pop icon, a cultural element … the glasses are a magical object.

This collection of glasses invites you to imagine their full functionality and purpose. It presents another cultural, surreal, personal and crazy aspect to this object that covers one of the most beautiful, poetic and expressive parts of the human body. It is also a reflection of the world of globalized design devoid of fantasy or risk. The Cool Glasses presents an imagined subculture in the world of fashion and design. A new urban tribe, a new person who wears these glasses unapologetically down the street.
