Protobacillus

Gustavo Spredemann and Leone Simonetti are a pair of artists that post their work under the name protobacillus. Gustavo is 26 and Leone is 25. They are both Brazilian Bachelors in Graphic Design. Leone is based in Joinville - SC (Brazil) while Gustavo is currently based in Buenos Aires (Argentina). Gustavo works as a freelancer webdesigner and graphic designer and Leone is focused on graphic design and traditional painting. Protobacillus started out in March 2014 under a different name and format. Initially they were just creating nonsense poster-like images in Adobe Photoshop. Those images soon evolved into what looks more like abstract paintings, sometimes very digital looking and sometimes looking like they have actually been painted. Their goal is to explore what can be done with the digital media and stretch its boundaries in a way that the tool is both the inspiration as well as the means to create. For them, this is a way to free themselves from the constraints of all the rules of graphic design and do something that is more organic and experimental. A lot of times they play with the imperfections or unexpected results of effects and operations when applied repeatedly or in a certain order. Working as a duo is an interesting dynamic for them as they share what they learn along the way and get challenged and inspired by each other’s work. Protobacillus joined Society6 on April 7, 2014
