Barcelona-based artist Ferran Castellnou, known as "ferr-w", shows us the possibility of creating dimensions and different inner people's worlds through digital painting.
My name is Ferran Castellnou, I’m 27 years old and I’m a plastic artist. Since I was a kid I’ve always liked painting and drawing. I feel I’ve always been connected somehow to art through many different disciplines and I really enjoy learning constantly and investigating new techniques. In the past five years, I’ve been through a really experimental period in my artistic career…I’ve been doing print, mural painting, oil painting and other different digital graphics.
All these possibilities of expression have also created some inner doubts about my work at some point. I had the feeling that all this variety of images that I was creating didn’t have any concrete thread, but nowadays I’ve learned and realized that it’s so interesting having diversity, it’s a way of surprising and not following any rules or patrons as we are used to in our society.

I just like going with the flow with spontaneity and get inspired by all the experiences that I live.
I always try to draw, paint and create an own artistic speech, own combinations and an own point of view in the way of expressing my reality.
Right now, I feel that my creative priority is to represent individual people, showing all their inner world and the possibility of having different realities, like showing the live environment of the guy who works in the shop at the corner of the street, a secretary, a business person or just people that I don’t know at all. By colour and shape, I try to imagine which are their emotions and concerns.
