My name is Gabriel Suchowolski, a.k.a. microbians.
I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1972 but then I moved to Spain where I currently live.
I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1972 but then I moved to Spain where I currently live. I currently work at Domestika in Design & Creativity for Product & Community.
I also have a personal passion for illustration. I love drawing. I have always done. From a very early age I developed a taste for comics and graphic novels, especially for the French masters such as Moebius or Enki Bilal. Also for Japanese manga… Urasawa, Otomo, Miyazaki, Morimoto…
I like playing piano, good 50’s movies and Earl Grey tea.
Ocasionally I also fancy a bit of programming. Since I was a kid I have flirted with technology and computer geekiness, which together with my interest for illustration has encouraged me to get involved with the creation of little multimedia pieces that I often conceive as my personal artistic expressions.
"microbians has created his own microcosmos. His obsession for the organic is the funkiest illustration of his works. But he is not closed to the graphical stuff, he is the author of the famous chromeless window. His sense of the interactive perception and his attention on details are what put him there." - Shift Magazine
In 2002, microbians picked the Arteleku award for his piece ‘Work&Work’ and also participated in ‘Design for Freedom’ (2002), ‘MINI La MJC’ (Paris, 2003), ‘Sicilio Project’ (Bolivia, 2003) and ‘MadInSpain’ (Madrid, 2003). His work has been showcased in several design publications such as Taschen, IdN or IndexBook.
