Based on the recommendation of a number of friends already living in the city, Bastidas’ move to Brooklyn proved to be a transformative one for his career.
Since 2017, his quirky and colourful aesthetic has caught the attention of the likes of Apple, Nike and The New York Times.
The city has also had a big personal impact on Bastidas; so much so that, shortly after the move, he decided to create a monthly animation celebrating all of its unique quirks.
More recently, Bastidas has turned his side project into a fully fledged short film.
Simply titled The Big Apple, it applies his trademark bold shapes and bright colours to a rotating series of scenes, and also features ambient sound design courtesy of David Kamp.
