Gustavo was wonderful to work with. He developed a great workshop based on our current exhibition and the children who participated learned a range of new skills and responded well to the workshop content. Gustavo was able to maintain the group's attention and engagement in the program and both children and parents enjoyed the creative outcomes.

Our community group - Victoria Street Alive! - contracted Gustavo to run four street poster workshops for local youth in May 2022. We witnessed Gus leading the groups of attendees with flair, charisma and a passion for creating simple but powerful poster creations. Young people - aged 8 years to 18 years - were inspired by his enthusiasm, encouraging them to think about their key message in a way that impacted the viewer. Ten of the posters were pasted up in our local main street, prompting interest from mainstream and social media, and the broader community. Gus is friendly, fun and works very well with youth and adults alike. We highly recommend his work as a street posters expert/practitioner. Judy Ryan & Greg Hordacre Victoria Street Alive!

Gustavo was such a pleasure to work with. He took the time to really understood what we were after and the personality of the project. It was fascinating to see his creative process and we're so happy with the artwork and the brightness it adds to our environment.

We have been fortunate enough to come accords Gustavo and his amazing work while looking for a street artist to do a very special mural across our external house wall, facing the kids playground, for our daughter’s first birthday gift. Gustavo has created something so magical, that we simply couldn’t thank him enough. He recreated a russian fairy tale that relates back to my childhood days and even managed to incorporate our two kids into it as main characters. I have no doubt this magical piece of art will remain not only on our wall, but also deep in the hearts and sweet childhood memories of our children for a lifetime. Apart from being the most incredible and talented artist, Gustavo also is a true gentleman and a great person to be around. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a true artist at heart in every way…

Gus is an absolute champion and his artwork speaks for itself! He absolutely exceeded my expectations with what he created and was a dream to communicate with. Will definitely be using him again in the future!

We had a wonderful experience at DCC working with Gustavo. He supported our students authentically through the creative process helping them to create meaningful illustrations that came together in a stunning mural. He was patient and considerate of all students ensuring they had ownership of the artwork as well. It is a magnificent representation of our school values and whole school community!

We booked Gustavo to paint mural at the entrance of our residential youth accommodation “The Cocoon”. Gustavo created an incredible design of a cocoon, caterpillars and 18 beautiful butterflies to represent each young woman who will be living in our Cocoon program. Our team were so impressed by the time, energy and passion that Gustavo committed to the project and the result was truly outstanding. The mural brings joy to every person who sees it and we are already thinking about new projects tha

Not only is Gustavo an exceptionally good graphic designer, he is also an exceptionally good teacher of graphic design. He engages and inspires young people to dig deep and think creatively to produce their work. At RMIT we have witnessed the enthusiasm of school students working alongside Gustavo to produce meaningful messages through the medium of graphic design. School students in RMITs I Belong Equity Outreach Program rate workshops with Gustavo very highly, as do we.

Gus’s work is stunning. He is a true creative and always delivers. A pleasure to work with and no idea is too big or too small. Plus he is one of the more ethical people you will ever meet.

Gustavo did an amazing job portraying our market community with his mural. Communication was clear throughout the painting process and we couldn't be happier with the result. With such a dynamic artistic style, our front fence will be treasured for years to come!
