“This is where it all started. What is now the contemporary products brand Paco Raphael, originates from these paintings. In these paintings, pictures Paco takes of cityscapes all over the world, are mixed with urban industrial life in the 1950ies, 60ies and 70ies, by adding images of old cinema, music, typography, erotica and architecture taken from posters. The print is finished by hand with paint, pen and stencils to result in a vibrant, mixed media painting that is very recognizable as a Paco Raphael artwork.”

“With “Utopia” Paco Raphael shows the true essence of life and love amidst a culture driven by wealth, well-being and prosperity. The world as a utopian society set against today’s new reality. Paco Raphael’s Utopia is a metropole dedicated to community, art, self-expression and self-reliance. A melting pot of creativity in which Paco playfully navigates between reality and fantasy”
