Una Transformación...

Tranqui Yanqui se convierte todavía más Argentino???
De donde viene el Tranquito Gil? Un Guachito Capitalista??

Vende? Roba? Compra? Yanqui? Argentino?
Las mezclas están tan profundas... no se sabe donde termina el yanqui boludo y donde empieza el Guachito....

New Website - New York Times!

The time is right... and the opening of the new space for the Children's Museum of the Arts aligns perfectly with the launch of Tranqui's New website- which features work from the past 4 years from Argentina and Europe.
check out the site here:

The site will soon feature an online store and interactive press section, highlighting the buzz Tranqui has been creating in Buenos Aires and around the world with his unique cardboard design.

For those who haven't seen it yet, Tranqui was recently mentioned in the NEW YORK TIMES, as one of the exhibiting artists at CMA's new space.

Thanks to all those who helped get the show together, bringing Tranqui flare to the homeland.

A Shout-Out.

An epic journey across 5 European countries, plus a short stint in New York City, has brought the Trankster to a pause.
Back in my hometown of Miami, I've had some time to reflect on the amazing experiences I've had, the people I've met, and what the literary term 'Tranquify that Shit' actually means to those who have no idea who the hell T.Y. actually is.
What began in Buenos Aires nearly 4 months ago (in fact, more like 3 years ago, when Tranqui was born) has evolved in ways I could not have predicted. An artistic cardboard character fabricated out of some crazy notion of Miami Pop mixed with Buenos Aires flavor, American kitsch, and Porteño style, has allowed me to twist perceptions, play with cultural stereotypes, meet some random and totally cool people, all the while having a pretty good time sharing my art along the way.
I want to extend thanks to all my friends and family for helping me so much throughout this process.

Special thanks to my kickstarter peeps as well; an overdue shout-out as promised is here: Carolina Escobosa, Jean Cozzens, Natalie Castellanos, Prescott Trudeau, James Martin, Anna Rothschild, Michael Koritschan, Livio Tschill Yah, Gates Bradley, Carla Doughty, Deb Coolidge, Cayce Moyer, Christine Moyer, Rebecca Friendly, Fran Krenick, Steph Choate, Jonny Robson, Mario Caputo, Michael Lockridge, Chase Hamilton, Diego Beyró, Jack Dart, Kimberly Tabor, Agustina Menendez, Kristin Mahshie, Kate Stanworth, Jenny Benitez Wilken, Jon Ruiz, Rachelle Beaudoin, Paricia Sparks, Judy Maloney, Naomi Campa, Uncle Rich, Aunt Sandy, my brother and Meghan, and my mom.

How Tranqui and the Tranqui World evolve now, with so much culture under His belt, is anyone's guess. Stay tuned for more.
See you soon Buenos Aires.

Bal Tropical
An Epic Finale to Tranqui's Extended stay in Paris....
Dancing under the stars (and a DJ Booth turned Juice Stand),

Now, if only I could do this full-time.

A cool-ass day in BERLIN.

The Trankster teams up with Owen the Irishman...
In 2 hours, we Tranquified this town,
the Wall, the Gate, the Russian Circus,
some German teens, some B-Ball,
and so much more.

Thanks to Owen Mccann & the people I met in Berlin
for Todo la Onda.
