PRINCIPAL

As Principal, Pablo helps lead the Space as Art studio team and expand the business with over a decade of experience in creative management and art direction. He received his education in the arts and business from top American art institutions, Ringling College of Art and Design, where he first earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree, and Savannah College of Art and Design, where he went on to earn his Master of Arts Degree.

Born in Puerto Rico, Pablo is fluent in both English and Spanish. Growing up, he became interested in the arts at a young age- first animation, then expanding to fine arts and design. “Whenever I would find a new avenue or style in the creative fields, my first sense was always admiration. From there, the analytical aspect of asking the questions, ‘what works?’ and, ‘why do I even like this?’ began informing my approach as a professional creating work. The rest was an extension of experience and awareness.”

WITH HIS ENERGETIC AND OUTGOING NATURE, PABLO MOST ENJOYS THE COLLABORATIVE PROCESS WITH OTHER MEMBERS OF THE PROJECT TEAM, INCLUDING CLIENTS AND PROFESSIONAL COLLEAGUES, TO CREATE THE MOST SUCCESSFUL FINISHED PRODUCT. OUTSIDE OF WORK, HE ENJOYS “READING, MOVIES, SWIMMING TO CALM THE MIND, AND GREAT FOOD SHARED WITH FAMILY.”
