Today is the third part in our series of Vector Art from around the world, and we’re focusing in on Mexico. I’d like to introduce you to two friends, Rafael Aguilar and Beto Garza.

In addition to getting to know them better and featuring their work, we’ll also gain unique insight into the detailed workings and processes behind Rafael’s work, as he’s kindly shared with us some work-in-progress screenshots!

Beto Garza uses simple, minimal palettes to create his vector work. Using geometric shapes and patterns, his work has a childlike, playful edge, yet still maintains a sophisticated, abstract look. This is partly due to the shapes and minimal palettes he uses, and he pulls it off very well.
