Guillem Vinas Maluquer, better known by his artistic name “Guille Chipironet”, was born in Barcelona on December 14, 1983. He brought up between Barcelona and La Pobla de Segur. At 16 he felt a creative restlessness, deciding to focus it on artistic studies. Not achieving the mark required to enrol on the university degree he was interested in (Fine Arts), he decided to become an upper secondary student specialized in artistic disciplines. A couple of years later, Guillem had gained knowledge of mural painting and industrial design, acquired at the Centre of Art and Design of La Massana. During his studies, he lived in Madrid, London, Sevilla or Barcelona, and aware of the uncertain future of his studies he decided to work in the port of Barcelona as a customs agent, a monotonous and routine job in an office. Tired of this kind of life, he moved to Berlin where he lives at the moment, combining his artistic talent with the “realistic life”, working as a waiter and having contact with this society. His most well known projects include works as a graphic designer (Taller de anuncios, Mari Trini Studio), as a fashion designer (Costuras Escéncias, Aurelia Paumelle, Tata Christiane), as a photographer (Begonya Egurbide, Elena San Francisco) and as a video maker (Macadamia Productions, European television).
