Today we chat with Sergio Gavila, a digital artist whose effort and time are the key to go from making small doodles in a notebook to using a graphics tablet.

 

Botó De Cotó: Who is Sergio?

Sergio Gavila:I was born and raised in Sanlúcar de Barrameda (Cádiz), a small coastal town, right at the mouth of the Guadalquivir. When I was 18 years old, I moved to Seville, a city where I spent four years of my life that were wonderful. There I studied a career in Marketing and Market Research, which I combined with learning techniques for drawing by hand and in digital format. When I finished my studies, I decided to move again, this time a little further, to Manchester, where I would spend a year living what has become the hardest and most beautiful adventure, I have ever taken part in. Then I returned to Spain, but this time I went to Madrid, where I live now, to do a master in e-commerce.

Botó De Cotó: What do you base your creative process on?

Sergio Gavila: When I draw, I usually start with something that goes through my head, an idea, a thought, a feeling or a memory. I don’t follow a procedure in itself, I don’t have a routine. When I sit down to draw, it usually coincides that I have had a very good day, or a very bad one.

Botó De Cotó: Do you have a favourite technique or do you prefer to experiment?

Sergio Gavila: I love to draw with lines, things that are very simple but that represent the essence of what you want to show. To be honest, I keep experimenting with new drawing or painting techniques all the time, and I repeat them over and over again.

Botó De Cotó: What is your biggest reference? Are you inspired by someone or something in particular?

Sergio Gavila: Although I love Miró’s way of abstracting the reality, or the confrontation of lines and shapes that characterize Kandinski, I tend to expand my range of references more and more, and it’s something that I love. There are some artists who do not fit much with my way of representing reality or with my tastes in painting / drawing, but I always learn something new from them, something that I transform and apply to what I do in some way.

Botó De Cotó: Your works are usually very linear. Do you share less is more?

 Sergio Gavila: Totally. Not only in what I do, also in the way I see life and organize myself.

Botó De Cotó: We love to see the art creation processes. Do you consider them part of your work or do you prefer that the final result be given full value?

 Sergio Gavila:I consider them fundamental. I usually save all the ‘scribbles’ that start a design. It helps me analyse mistakes and learn from them, without becoming obsessed.
