The Designer - Javier Mariscal
Javier Mariscal is born in Valencia in 1950.
At the age of 19 years we find him in Valencia, publishing El
Senor del Caballito, his first character. He moves to Barcelona,
studying at Escuela Elisava and founding El Rollo Enmascarado,
an underground comic that is sold on the streets. In 1977 he holds
his first individual exhibition, Gran Hotel, in which he transforms
space into a multidisciplinary Hotel, with painted glass, hand-made
sweaters, papier mache objects, editorial products and coloured
In 1989 Cobi is chosen as the Olympic mascot of Barcelona 92 and
the exhibition '100 Years with Mariscal', produced by Mariscal
himself, is held. A dismantled ship that has been emptied inside
is used as a box to propose a comprehensive view of the thousands
of supports forming Mariscal's work. Here we can already perceive
a look, an attitude that serves as a thread, a nexus, a key. At
the end, some computers where you can create and print your own
Mariscal give the visitor the chance to carry off his or her own
contribution. This same year Estudio Mariscal is born. Logotypes
are designed and fashion bars are decorated. The team designs,
together with Alfredo Arribas, the Acuarinto children's are a within
the Huis ten Bosch park in Nagasaki (Japan).
This project combines architecture, interior design, graphic image,
animation, merchandising and the new multimedia supports.
In 1996 Twipsy is chosen as the mascot of the Hanover 2000 World
Expo. The development of the corporate and merchandising projects
is carried out. 1998 marks the founding of Muviscal, a company
devoted to audiovisual prodution. Muviscal produces the cartoon
series Twipsy, formed by 52 chapters of 15 minutes. Twipsy is an
Internet messenger who, through the confrontation of the real world
and cyberspace, aims to visualize the new realities to the youngest
Estudio Mariscal produces Colors. This is a visual spectacle which
combines an overhead projection screen, a protagonist-narrator
who is a robot (Dimitri), 7 actors who are gymnasts, shadow-makers,
dancers and stage-hands, 4 singing robots, a soundtrack and a lighting
set-up. It is a tale in a humorous key in which the story of colours
is told. Estudio Mariscal produced the collectable Diseno Grafico
Salvat. This editorial project in 45 parts proposes a journey in
the world of graphic design through concrete concepts and diverse
attitudes at the cutting edge of design. At the moment Estudio
Mariscal is developing various projects of interiorism for a hotel
opposite the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, a theme park in southern
Italy, a landscape project around the new municipal theatre in
Mostoles and other graphic, audiovisual and editorial projects.
Javier Mariscal has never abandoned the more artistic aspect of
his career and his work has been displayed in numerous individual
and group exhibitions throughout this whole period. He also gives
conferences in various parts of the world, shows his works and
explains his professional experience to students of various disciplines.
