Scale up your designs to large format illustrations with the spray paint technique

Can you imagine a job transforming spaces such as rooms or ordinary street walls into extraordinary universes? Broadly speaking, that is what Camilo Gordillo, better known as Ceroker, does for a living. Either through commissions or personal projects, the urban artist and graphic designer creates illustrations that bring to life characters and tell stories in the spaces he paints, reviving them with color and joy.

In this online course, learn to transfer a digital illustration to a large-format mural (or canvas). Explore the whole process, from the digital sketching phase to transferring your piece to the physical space, where you paint it with the help of aerosols.

Teacher Plus
Urban Artist and Graphic Designer

Ceroker is a Colombian illustrator and urban artist who started painting at the age of 14. Having a defined social stance and studying graphic design led him to understand graffiti on another level. He became interested in typography and took advantage of everything he could learn to develop his style, until he decided to dedicate himself to what he loved most. Without finishing his degree, he began working in a studio as a graphic designer, collaborating on several projects creating logos and corporate images.

He went on to found the street art collective A Tres Manos Estudio. Today he is one of the most important representatives of Colombian Graffiti, where he stands out for his use of color, his characters, and the stories he tells in each of his murals.
