a bit about Ferran

What are you working on these days?

I work on illustration, costume design, art direction and film.

What drives you mad these days?

That people keep voting for corrupt and fake liberal political parties.

What makes you happy?

The people I love.

When was the last time you cried?

Probably watching some cheesy film.

What’s your latest musical obsession?

Right now I’m listening to “Cassius – Action, ft. Mike D and Cat Power” and “John Talabot- Sunshine”. Or you can follow my favourites on my youtube channel.

When it’s time for a new wardrobe, where do you go?

I’m very bad at shopping for clothes, I kind of hate the process of trying them on at the shops. I always buy some stuff at vintage shops when I travel. For new clothes I’ve been going to Pull & Bear, Topman & COS lately. I’m also buying more and more online.

What’s your go-to café in Barcelona?

I’d recommend Satan’s Coffee corner.

What’s your favorite street or neighborhood to wander through?

The neighbourhood of La Ribera del Born and Raval.

What’s the thing you LOVE to do in Barcelona but never actually do?

Skateboarding around. Going to upper-town or to the port area to walk around, visit the various city lookouts.

Who’s your hero (dead or alive) and where would you take them to show them a good time?

I’m not really into real heroes. My family, my friends, maybe the Beastie Boys and Tilda Swinton. I’d try to throw a party for them and see from there.

If it’s been raining outside for days and you’re sick of staying in – where would you go?

Cinema and bars.

What’s that place in Barcelona you feel like only you know about?

Maybe the bunkers of El Carmel.

If tomorrow was your last day in Barcelona before you left for good, how and where would you spend it?

A paella and some beach time and swimming in the sea.

You’ve just received the best news ever. Where would you go to celebrate and with whom?

I’d invite my friends to La Venta, a nice restaurant in the slope of Tibidabo.

What’s the thing you love doing that isn’t work, relationship or family related?

Playing football with my friends.

When you feel like a night out, what’s your go-to place and why?

I’d hit Betty Ford’s and see from there. I’m not into going to clubs anymore, but I’d check where is the best music for the night or try to convince some friend to do a house party.
