JAIME HAYÓN
Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayón was born in Madrid in 1974.
 
As a teenager, he submerged himself in skateboard culture and graffiti art, the foundation of the detailed, bold-yet-whimsical imagery so imminent in his work today.
After studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris he joined Fabrica in 1997, the Benetton - funded design and communication academy, working closely with the legendary image-maker and agitator Oliverio Toscani.
