We had the good fortune of connecting with Freddy Espin and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Freddy, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Risk its necessary in ours life to move on to the next level, but at the end of the day stay or jump both are a risk. In my case I always take a risk, but I planned and keep all my tools and skills just in case, I like “break the glass in case of emergency” 

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
With pleasure allow me to introduce myself my name is Freddy Espin Venezuelan illustrator artist based in the city of Miami, Painting, drawing, illustrating for me is something innate in my being from drawing nonsensical lines that form an image to being meticulous in details, it relaxes me from being transported towards my interiority and from there it is expressed in an image on canvas or paper. I don’t have a formal education as an artist. I come from a more scientific education. What I paint is my expression of feelings, ideas that come my mind, inspirations, memories.I hope you like it and you feel identified with some of my work that would be of great value to me as an artist. Thanks in advance!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Definitely we start in the morning at South beach all day chilling enjoying the nice weather and vibes then a nice dinner on ocean drive walk and watch the nice art deco arquitecture. Next day of course Winwood walls street art every where and nice restaurants more into gipter vibes And to finish let get an elegant outfit and let’s go to miracle mile at coral gabkes to enjoy all the restaurants
