'Balloon Bambi (Purple)' is a new limited edition sculpture by Paco Raphael. Paco’s popular Bambi family elegantly steps into urban society even further. With Balloon Bambi, Paco attaches them to one of our most beloved symbols of happiness and freedom, physically connecting nature to human nature.
Paco graduated from The Hague University with a degree in Applied Sciences in Communication & Multimedia Design. As a creative in advertising, he never stopped exploring ways to improve his work and its impact on the world around him. Working for big brand names like Philips, Renault, G-Star, Bol.com and MTV Networks, he evolved into a senior graphic designer. Still ambitious to explore more and better, he restated himself as artist, combining conventional art with digital media.
Pushing his limits and the limit that separates art from design, he now puts his ambition and abilities to work as an industrial designer, uniting his artwork with innovative materials and products. Paco Raphael shows a new approach to all that surrounds us in life, from a painting to furniture or fashion. And we doubt he’ll stop here.
