MINSU MEETS... David Tutti dos Reis 016
I came across David's work a few months ago and immediately fell in love - the way he manipulates colours and creates dream like states is second to none - He has worked with Red Bull, Primavera and more so when he agreed to give us access to his mind we jumped at the chance.
Hi David, so to start, where are you from and when did you start working in the creative industries?
・I hail from Lisbon, Portugal and started working with images around 2010
What projects are you currently working on?
・I just finished a music video for Da Chick, a Portuguese artist. I am also in the process of finishing a video art project due to come out in 2018 as well as co-directing a collection of short pieces for a TV show.
What is the creative scene like where you are?
・Oh! It’s boomin’ right now. Lisbon is the new whatever, and it’s kinda great, a lot creative people coming up and more ways to live off being creative.
What would you say have been your career highlights so far? ・Fresh out of University having my first short-film premiering at a proper film festival.
We are all about collaboration - do you think this is an important part of creating and if so then how has it changed the way you work?
・Collaborating is cool, considering you are doing it with the right people. When it all works out you feel like you formed Voltron (and Gza happens to be the head... lol). It can be an
amazing experience to collaborate, you can definitely learn a lot.
Who was/is your main influence? ・I would say that my main influence is whatever surrounds me. I am also heavily
influenced by painters from renaissance to contemporary art and music. I try to be really careful with what can influence me, staying away from a lot of stuff. Nature never disappointed me.
3 creators we should be checking out? ・Ben Solomon, Hiro Murai, KangHee Kim
