Testimonials
"We (NixonMcInnes) commissioned Carlos to produce a series of artworks for our office in 2010. Carlos really 'got' what was quite a complicated brief, and has turned some quite dull spaces into really cool areas with a mix of tentacles, impossible shapes and even a gnome. I'm really pleased with the work and look forward to working with him in the future. I'd highly recommend him."
