Hello, Eline! That’s the 3rd issue of ‘Marcel & me’ and we’re delighted for having you here.
Hi Hervé! Thanks for your invitation.
Firstly, may I ask you to introduce yourself?
Of course. Once upon a time, during my studies to be an illustrator, a small agency scouted me online. I did some small jobs and sometimes worked as a model for other art school students. When I finished my studies and that agency quit, I wanted to see how far I could get as a model, since my art wasn’t making me a living. I mailed my pictures to some agencies and Shirley from SPS Model Management reacted positively right away and we met some days later. From then on things got busy. I spend some time in Milan working on my book, meeting a lot of nice people and doing fun jobs all over Italy. Last August I went to New York for the first time, to try my luck at Fashion Week. At the moment I’m dividing my time between modeling jobs and illustration. I like the fact that I can combine the two; one gives me inspiration for the other, as they both revolve around creating an image. People I might meet on a modeling job could be potential clients for my illustrations. We’ll see where things take me next.
Well, once again (see in 'Marcel & me' - Issue #02), what we have here is an interesting example of transversality. As we already told last week, we strongly encourage this type of creative approach.
My first choice is the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague. They have a very nice main collection and often have interesting exhibitions. It’s a beautiful building too. Next, I choose Artico Gelateria in Milan, because my roommate and I went there almost every day for gelato when we were staying in Milan. They have the best flavors and are open until midnight. Last but not least I pick the lovely neighborhood ‘Scheepsvaartkwartier’ in Rotterdam. There’s a little harbor that lights up at night. This part of Rotterdam wasn’t bombed and is full of beautiful buildings and parks. It’s where I used to live when I was a student and where I still take the waterbus, a ferry, to go to my boyfriend.
Thanks from all of us for these expert tips! Our to-do list is growing every week…

Hello, Rafa! You’re our special guest for this 2nd Issue of ‘Marcel and me’ and It really makes us happy!
Hello Hervé! Thanks for your invitation!
First of all, especially for our readers who don’t know you yet, may you introduce yourself?
Well… I’m more fluent in images than in words, but I will try to introduce myself to those who do not yet know me the best way possible, camouflaging as much as I can my limited writing skills!
Nice track so far! And very interesting artistic process. Here, our own approach has always been based on a healthy form of curiosity about lateral approaches and we still actively encourage transversality. Rafa, you told us you’re now based in Barcelona ; could you recommend us three places you love most?
Three places? OK… First I love is Bar Lobo in Barcelona where I go with Laura (my girl-friend) a lot. The food is great and I have wonderful memories there. Second one, The Georges Pompidou Center in Paris, I think the curators and museographers working there are brilliant, a true holy place for Art. The third place I love is the Catalan mountain of Montserrat, for centuries hermits, mystics and pilgrims have gone there, and once you are up, after a long walk and in silence, without a doubt you understand why.
Thanks from us all! Now, are you feeling ready to answer the famous Marcel Proust’s questionnaire?
So, let’s roll…
The principal aspect of your personality: Chronic Curiosity Disorder or CCD, leading me to a constant state of observation.The quality that you desire in a man: HumilityThe quality that I desire in a woman: Character.What you appreciate most about your friends: I really appreciate the fact that surprisingly they are still talking to me.Your main fault: I am a mess and easily distracted, I could lose things like my phone five times before leaving the house and even lose my camera several times during shootings, I usually stop every few minutes because I cannot find it.Your favorite occupation: Contemplating, meditating, doing and talking about Art.Your dream of happiness: Being a positive influence to everyone surrounding me.What would be your greatest misfortune: Being utterly dramatic! A friend described this to me some years ago, he said “You ask for a light coke in a bar and if the waiter tells you they do not have any, you go like: Oh! God! No! Once more… just a frail puppet of destiny!!!”What you should like to be: I would like to become the best version of myself, both personally and professionally.The country where you should like to live: Spain, but I guess somewhere with an overwhelming vegetation would be nice too.Your favorite color: Green and grey-green.The flower that you like: Lilies and daisies but I love flowers in general, they have always been present in the arts because of their qualities, became symbols of beauty and its ephemeral nature, the fugacity of life, all concepts that are a constant in my work and thoughts. In a way, in my fashion images I am a flower photographer.Your favorite bird: Rosemary roasted chicken. (I should go get dinner after this)Your favorite prose authors: I feel a special connection to my Latin American origins when reading Isabel Allende or Gabriel García Marquez.Your favorite poets: My favorite poets are visual poets, Andre Kertesz would be one of them, his late still lives deeply move me.Your favorite heroes in fiction: I find it hard to admire fictional characters.Your favorite heroines in fiction: Same as my previous answer.Your favorite composers: I would say George Frideric Handel.Your favorite painters: Now this is the toughest! Painting is my biggest passion. Some of my favorites and in no particular order would be Velazquez, Goya, Cecilia Giménez, Francis Bacon, Cy Twombly, Odd Nerdrum, Nino Longobardi, Antoni Tapies, Robert Motherwell, Franz Kline, Cesar Menéndez, Jose Luis Cuevas and Benjamín Cañas just to name a few.Your heroes/heroines in real life: People who during difficult times can keep a good sense of humor. I truly admire that.Your favorite names: Laura. It has a Latin root that refers to the laurel wreaths given to the victorious.What you hate most of all: Racism, injustice and violence.The gift of nature that you would like to have: A peaceful mind.How you wish/want to die: Old as dirt after laughing too hard!Your present state of mind: Restless.Faults for which you have the most indulgence: I am indulgent to most of people’s faults in general, it’s not in my nature to judge other’s behaviors.Faults for which you have the least indulgence: Arrogance and prepotency.What is your motto?: 'Ex umbra in solem', a Latin phrase meaning from the shadows and into the light.
Thanks for accepting our invitation and for participating to this second issue of ‘Marcel & me’, Rafa! It was extremely interesting to listen to you and great to have you here from Barcelona.
We wish you all the best for your future projects!
Thank you, Hervé! See you in Barcelona!
Sure. And maybe next summer!
