Hello, my name is Alejandro Kobiakov and I’m the creator of culismo.
I decided to develop culismo because in it I found a fun project to explore, uniqueness for expression, endless artistic possibilities and lots of commercial edge. It is my million dollar idea.
You can contact me at: ak [at] culismo [dot] om.
I’m a designer/illustrator/animator and struggling artist. Born and raised in Caracas (Venezuela), I spent several years in Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic) and South Brunswick (USA) before returning to Caracas and receiving a degree in graphic design from Universidad Nueva Esparta.
In 2000 co-founded in Caracas the studio LDTQHLADLIDSG, where I collaborated in over 30 animated pieces for TV and film.
In 2004 I relocated to Madrid, Spain, to start and develop culismo. Later I moved to Barcelona, where I currently reside.
I continue working on graphic design, illustration and animation projects. Until the end of spring 2010 I collaborated with the TV show “Salvados”, broadcasting over 70 episodes. I also teach After Effects within the motion graphics program at IDEP.
