IN CONVERSATION WITH FRAN R. LEARTE AND NATALIA MOLINOS FROM NASTPLAS
Photography by Nastplas
Interview by Melanie Meggs
Nastplas is a creative duo born from the fusion of two talented Spanish mixed media artists, Fran R. Learte (aka drFranken), illustrator and software developer freelance and Natalia Molinos (aka Na), illustrator and creative director. DrFranken and Na have known each other since they were sixteen and in 2006 they started this artistic collaboration. Together, they are changing the way we look at photography by bringing 2D forms into experimental digital spaces.
As their fascinating portfolio reveals, NastPlas’s subject range is vast and exploratory characterised by distinctive deep and enveloping aesthetics. Inspired by what surrounds them, in recent years, the creative couple have produced a large number of works, creating unique projects that give the viewer a journey into their visual world.
"Our work explores in a conceptual background the limits between reality and abstraction through an ascending and constant process of artistic investigation and experimentation."
