ArtCrush: Edgar Murillo
We caught up with artist Edgar Murillo to admire the men that have been inspiring his work.
When did you discover and begin to explore your passion for art and illustration?
I discovered it from birth. I was born deaf and it was difficult for me to communicate with my family, so I used papers and pencils to draw to be able to communicate something. I draw every day, and I’m very happy.
How would you describe your style of illustration?
Honestly, I don’t know what my style is — I draw different types of drawings and I keep making more drawings with new styles. The important thing is that people like it a lot.
Who are some of your heroes or artistic inspirations?
SilverJow, Kimjunggius, and Nesskain — you must follow him!
Are the men you draw hyper-masculine?
Yes — I’m a pogonophile — I love furry!
The inspiration comes from my imagination, friends, movies, and social networks. The majority of men that I draw are from Barcelona, others from America.
What do you expect people to feel when they look at your work?
Hypnotised! Some people have told me that they find my drawings arousing.
