(Seville 1980)

Graduated in Fine Arts by the University of Seville with a specialty in Etching and Design.
Lover of Art, ever since an early age felt the need of sharing with others pieces of his inner world and for that he used pencil and paper to which, with the passing of time, would follow painting, etching, drawing, photographing and his Blythe doll customizations as the last stage, creatin
g characters with which he recreates situations, scenes and sensations.

His works have been selected in contests, like the National Plastic Arts Award from the University of Seville, award by the National Contemporary Art Contest in the city of Utrera and he participated in various collective exhibitions.
His creations were published in the book “TOYLAND” by Louis Bou for Monsa Editorial, among artists like Tokidoki, Gary Baseman, Eboy and others.
Several blogs and digital magazines have published his works and interviews since he began his career in the world of doll customization.
In February 2012 was released worldwide his first solo book Super Cute Dolls, The Art of Erregiro a visual book which collects his work of the past five years as a photo album.

Today his creations are to be found all over the world: Europe, America, Asia, Oceania and Africa.

A tireless dreamer, he always chases after the oniric beauty capable of evasion and travel…

    "Es la primera vez que escribo una cosa de estas en un perfil. Lamento que el inglés se me dé como todo... fatal. Quien quiera saber lo que digo que vaya al traductor de Google.

    Rafa es tan artista y abarca tantas habilidades que es imposible contabilizarlas. No he visto ningún trabajo de él que no se describa como "perfecto". Y ahora lo más difícil de todo.... Cómo es que un artistazo semejante puede ser además una tan bella persona?

    No puede ser, tiene que tener un defecto. Ser del Madrid o algo!!

    Big artist... beautiful person."

    "erregiro is a kind, gentle and generous man. He is also a brilliant artist and photographer. I know him as an internet friend and master doll artist. His work on Blythe dolls are imaginative, detailed and utterly beautiful. The dolls he has worked on are much loved by their owners and much sought after by their admirers. If you are lucky enough to know erregiro and to own one of his creations you are twice blessed."

    "There really is only one word to describe his dolls and art: fantastic. He really makes the dolls have the most beautiful features [notice the make-up, hair, clothes, accesories, etc.] and haves people wanting to have them [I'm one of those people.] I think that erregiro is an artist.

    The fact that he can fix all of the broken, uncoditioned dolls is also the most extrodinary thing. I find him very inspiring to everybody. Twelve thumbs up! [Two thumbs for each of my 6 friends]"

    "Erregiro es un ARTISTA. Desde la primera vez que conocí sus trabajos quedé enamorada. Sus niñas tienen vida en la mirada, son inconfundibles y en mi casa todas admiramos sus trabajos y lo adoramos como persona. Porque además de artista, cosa importante sin duda, Rafa es cercano, amable, cariñoso y nada divo. Gracias por ser tan especial, te queremos."

    Ele criou uma nova arte: tranformar umas bonequinhas absolutamente sem graças, em verdadeiras divas, que além de lindas, parecem adquirir vida nas mãos deste grande mestre.
    Obrigada por compartilhar seus trabalhos conosco. É um privilégio poder admirar-lo!"
