Brosmind’s latest illustrations for Nike: a campaign for running awareness in Spain. They chose to create 19 different illustrations, each depicting characters running while doing ordinary things, i.e. running to the store, or running to catch the bus, or running after you get robbed. The illustrations were made into stickers which were slapped all over Barcelona.
Brosmind are holding their own competition on Facebook asking their fans to take 12 photos of 12 stickers in 12 different places in Barcelona. Winners will receive a Brosmind Cantoniers poster and a Brosmind Balvi tray.

Another brilliant piece from the Mingarro Brothers at Brosmind – a gig poster for Ray Lamontagne and David Gray, performing tonight at the Greek Theatre in Berkley, CA.
“We’ve always wanted to do a 180 poster like this, and we felt this was the perfect opportunity.” says Alejandro Mingarro. “Fans for each artist can choose how to hang the poster, depending on whom they happen to love more. Either direction, the poster works well.”

Brosmind has a second solo show opening this month of their Brosmind Army project, a limited edition collection of ceramic soldiers coined “Los Canotiers”. The show opens at the Kemistry Gallery, London June 25th and runs through July 31, 2010.
To read more about the Brosmind Army project, check out our previous post with interviews and more.
The Mingarro brothers have just opened their most recent gallery show titled The Brosmind Army. The show consists of 50 cylindrical ceramic sculptures, each with unique facial expressions and accessories.
We asked Juan and Alejandro to tell us more about the concept of this project, and the process of working in freestanding sculpture:
“Since we were kids, we have been collecting action figures and toys, always interested in one day creating our own collection. We always had in mind to do it in 3-D. The Brosmind Army consists of a growing collection of limited edition ceramic sculptures. We used ceramic because we wanted to create fine art limited pieces as opposed to an industrial product.
The Army is divided into several Platoons of 50 soldiers, distinguished by a particular kind of hat. Each solider is a unique character with it’s own face, tattoos, and accessories. Turning the hat of the soldier rotates between three different facial expressions.”
That’s Juan on the left, and Alejandro on the right. You can learn more about the brothers at www.brosmind.com
Brosmind’s work for Land Rover is featured in this month’s Lürzer’s International Archive. The work also received a bronze at the Clio’s and a merit at the Art Director’s Club NY
The campaign was done with Y&R New York, with Art Directors Guillermo Vega and Menno Kluin, and Copywriter Icaro Doria.
Menno took some time to tell us about the experience of working with Brosmind and the perspective they brought to this campaign:
“We knew Brosmind would be perfect for the ‘Go Beyond’ campaign. We didn’t want to get too specific and prohibit them from being imaginative with the way they could interpret the project– we were really interested in their creative input. After looking at 17th century etchings of globes, we decided to use open space to depict the vastness of the unknown. What we ended up with is something very different for Landrover: something a bit more humorous, but also an insightful thought about the way we seek adventure and why people buy this car.”
The campaign has been highlighted in Little White Lies Magazine as well as Huck Magazine, UK, and can be purchased on the below sites:
Brosmind has a new multi-media campaign out for Milk. Created for the Canadian Prairie milk farmers, the campaign involves print, television, and online.
The concept revolves around facts and fictions about what Milk provides culture and the body. With this in mind, Brosmind was able to really explore and expand their love of detail:
“We love to work with detail, and to make objects come to life. So we really had fun giving the buildings legs, and not only filling up these little cities with people, but with personality.”

Brosmind recently completed a poster for the Phish fall tour. The posters were on sale at their November 27th and 28th shows in Albany, NY, and have since stirred up much interest on blogs and websites among the band’s many followers.
Juan and Alejandro Mingarro, the masterminds behind the work, shared some thoughts with us on their inspiration and process for this piece:
“We have always had a strong interest in antique pinball machines and the games seen at old fairs. They are so graphic and usually very intricate. We wanted to use many components and details in the overall piece, much like the music of Phish…many sounds layered together to make one song.”
Below is a detail of the piece:
“After we completed the poster, we were really happy with the fact that the work was so connected to the band. When the fans emailed us with such great compliments, it made us very proud. With a band like Phish, it is important to take into account not only the music but also the fans and culture.”
Brosmind recently completed a series of gig posters for Wolfmother’s American tour.
The band approached Brosmind with an open brief to create two pieces for their New York and Chicago shows. The pieces are very different aesthetically, so we asked the illustration duo to talk about their influences and process in making the work:
“We have never been to Chicago and everything we understand about it comes from old travel programs. We always understood Chicago as a big, windy city with hundreds of skyscrapers. In listening to Wolfmother, we were inspired by the psychedelic. So we tried to mix those two concepts, where the Chicago Skyline is drawn by a dark liquid that revolves around polygons floating over a windy city.”
“For New York we wanted to do something very different and new to us. We decided to use free and broken lines and dark colors beneath a singing moon to create a mysterious atmosphere.”
Juan and Alejandro Mingarro, the forces behind Brosmind, have completed a new piece for The Dave Matthews Band entitled “Jelly Jar”. It is now available to buy on the L/L Shop!
