Growing up Edgar believed that what he was doing was just drawing but now that he has settled into his own style, he has realized that almost everything is art, we are all artists, and each person is good at something. Edgar is an artist from Mexico that was inspired to create by the graffiti he saw growing up. His work has evolved from calligraffiti to tattooing and he urges other artists to never give up no matter how small or large the obstacle.
Edgar creates calligraphy murals as well as unique original pieces of art and clothing that you can purchase or view on his Instagram profile: @Luna_RT12
Edgar recently started tattooing and has already created a body of work for himself as seen below in the next few images.
◼️2. Do you do any other type of art like for example sculpture or music outside of calligraphy?
I just started tattooing.
◼️3. What was art like for you growing up?
I thought it was just drawing but now that I’m older I realize that most things are art, we are all artists, and each person is good at something.
◼️4. Did you go to school for art or were you self-taught?
I didn’t have any classes; I was inspired by the graffiti I saw when I went to the city and by the works of Instagram artists.
◼️5. On your bad days, how do you stay motivated?
I try to concentrate on doing something productive like going for a walk to clear my mind.
◼️6. Are there sports, places, other artists, books or movies that inspire you?
I like to skate, go running on the hills and there are many artists who inspire me so that helps me so I don’t give up on my goals.
◼️7. Are there any tools or art supplies that you use today that you wish you knew or had when you started?
Some good quality brushes and a tablet to make designs.
◼️8. Any advice for beginning artists or those struggling with their creativity?
Don’t give up, keep doing what you like, whether it’s something small, but be constant and little by little you will see results, just don’t give up.
◼️9. What would you say has been the best comment you have received from people who have come across your work?
When someone admires my art and tells me it’s beautiful.

"I like to use bright colors because in the midst of chaos, having expressive colored art draws the attention and awakens those good feelings in people. My intention is to not only influence people in graffiti but also children who are discovering new things."
"Gosto de usar cores vivas porque, em meio ao caos, ter uma arte colorida expressiva chama a atenção e desperta esses bons sentimentos nas pessoas. Minha intenção é não só influenciar as pessoas no grafite, mas também as crianças que estão descobrindo coisas novas."
