Emilio, concerned with the digitalization of our society, saw his culture moving slowly away from the tangible. As reaction to this, he left his multimedia career and embraced the tactile. Drawn to the fascination of plastic, he started a new stage with thesecret Lapo Laboratories , a space for plastic experimentation, where he can give capacity to his artistic restlessness, far away from bits, clicks, databases and scripts. Out of this desire to make form with his own hands, the Jumping Brain viral was born. As his first independent project, the Jumping Brain has become an overnight sensation.
Now Emilio' sculptures are currently being exhibited in art galleries, art fairs and museums throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Due his artistic growth and budding success, Emilio is also involved in all sorts of neuro-urban merchandising, from Art Toys to skate decks, mugs, keychains, clothing and many more.
