Wheatpaste Art Collective is only as cool as its employees. We want to make sure you get to know the people behind the brand, which is why we’re stoked to bring you our first Meet + Greet. It’s an inside look at what makes Wheatpaste Art Collective tick, and a peek into the lives of the people that make it all happen.
Our first Meet + Greet is from our insanely talented Graphic Design department. Raul Montoya is a 26 year old designer who hails from Baja California and calls San Diego home. He’s rad, we love him, and we’re so excited to show him off!
How long have you worked for Wheatpaste Art Collective?: 1 year and 9 months, I started in October 2010.
What’s your favorite piece from Wheatpaste Art Collective? Eye of the Lion by Nate Duval.
Favorite band(s): M83, Coldplay, Foster The People, Beach House, Boards Of Canada, Eskmo, Emancipator
Weird fact about yourself: I like to walk barefoot (could live barefoot).
If you could have a superpower, what would it be? I wish I could fly so I can go to different places and see the world from the sky. Flying would be awesome. (We second that).
If your life was made into a movie, who would you want to play you? Javier Bardem is a Spanish actor that I admire. One of his latest films “Biutiful” was nominated for many awards, some of his films are a must-see.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why? I would love to be in Japan, more specifically Tokyo. This is a place I have in mind and would like to visit in a future. I am fascinated by its culture, technology, food and it would be an amazing place to take pictures.
Stay tuned for more awesome Meet + Greets in the future. See more from the Wheatpaste Art Collective collection here!
