Outer Space Monsters by Campana Brothers

Flix, Flex - They are like aliens with the human shape inside, they are out of the space and the surface is their skin, different from the astronauts their skin is direct.


Brothers Fernando (born 1961) and Humberto (born 1953) Campanas founded in 1983 in Sao Paulo Estudio Campana. Their work incorporates the idea of transformation, reinvention and the integration of craftsmanship in mass production. Giving preciousness to common materials carries not only the creativity in their design but also their very Brazilian characteristics – the colors, the mixtures, the creative chaos, the triumph of simple solutions.

The creatures are not ugly or terrifying, we see more things in daily life that are horrible. The Outer space monsters might be everywhere. They move in our brain, but they are also in the streets, in the countryside and in less expected places. Sometimes we are not sure if they are real or just hallucinations, but they became an entity by themselves.

My monsters

What are your private monsters?

F: Our brain, because it is our black box, where you find things you never open and you don’t tell even to yourself.

What monsters were you afraid as a child?

F: A donkey without head, which is a character from Brazilian folklore. During my life, this character always came nearer to the city and I was afraid of opening the door and find it in the garden. Curiously nowadays I have cut the head of the stuffed toy animals in my sofa, because I am afraid of things that I cannot see.

What are the most frightening monsters of today?

F: Politicians worldwide!
