Artist Profile

Carlos Vega is a motion director with illustration, fine art, creative direction and live action video expertise. His commercial work with animated graphics has ranged from complex projects like the NBC election coverage to the youth brand PINK for Victoria's Secret.

His art is a studied collection of thoughts and experiences, that takes him on a path of self-exploration to reconnect to lost moments, lost people and lost places. He combines simple, often geometric shapes with nebulous backgrounds and exploring abstract concepts through various mediums, exploring a tension between the logical and the inexplicable. Carlo received his BA from the University of South Carolina in 2000 and currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.

Brand Experience: Victoria's Secret, NBC (News, CNBC, msnbc), Equinox, VH1, MTV, Bloomberg, PIRA
