Reskate Arts & Crafts is a workshop and graphic arts studio from Barcelona that creates handmade, artesanal projects. Members Maria Lopez (1980) and Javier de Riba (1985) – both graphic designers and illustrators from Donostia-San Sebastián and Barcelona respectively – are primarily dedicated to projects which include graphic design, illustration, installations, and murals.
As Reskate Arts & Crafts, Maria and Javier provide graphic services using their distinctive handmade techniques, making use of the means and materials they have within reach. As an artistic collective, they place emphasis on the materials they choose in order to make the most of their expressive capabilities. They firmly believe that the materials and techniques used must never be gratuitous or excessive, and must operate only as a vessel to convey and amplify the underlying message.
