A wild mind raised by wolves in the rainy centre of Mexico
Pendragon began his career at a very young age experimenting with painting, sculpture, CGI, architecture, design, and welding. Pendragon’s works deal with occultism, transmutation, symbolism, destruction and re-building.
All resulting in a blow of very limited artifacts that touch the dark themes of our present era.
HOW? I am from Mexico and spent the first 25 years of my life there.
When I was a child I liked to play with plastic soldiers, the green classics, but I did not play war but rather organised and arranged them as if I were in the middle of a battle and took pictures of them.
It was like putting together a still life in paint.
In Mexico, the original toys of anything never came, much less to the town where I was from. However, what did come were the pirate versions of things like Mazinger, He-Man, and Thundercats.
Back then those bootlegs were of very poor quality and the most probable thing is that they were toxic, made of PVC or something similar.
When I returned to Mexico a couple of years ago I checked my old things and I found a plastic Luchador and I brought it to Germany.
As the paint job was very bad I decided to paint it blue with spray paint and I thought I would paint other parts red and so I created a very deplorable Spiderman.......but I liked how bad it looked, and there was the spark that led me to try to make reproductions in resin!
In the first days I spent a lot of money and resources on failed attempts, but hitting the wall was the way I learn't everything I know today, almost as a scientific method where I only follow what I know works.
Since then I have spent time mixing and remixing toys, seeking to achieve the rarest and most rad toys! After all, making my own toys was what I had always dreamed as a child.
