We have a vision.
Our whole family has been influenced by art, through many different mediums for years. Every one of us is driven by it, and we do our best to make it show in our every day lives.
Our philosophy has always been that our friends and family grow with us. When you purchase one of our products, you become part of our family. You grow with us. The countless hours of toiling, creating, spilling our very souls into the products we make become a part of you. A part of your identity. And that's been our goal from day one: For our passion to be a part of yours.
No matter what you do,
Live the Depaula way.
Guillermo DePaula is a Cuban-American artist residing in the Florida Keys. Guillermo is known as the Island Artist. From the time he was knee-high to a crocodile, he has wanted to draw. During his college years, a once in a lifetime experience occurred. He encountered the Dalai Lama, who gave Guillermo his blessing as well as the wise words "Follow your dreams." From that point he knew that art was his passion and calling in life. Guillermo wants to bring people the beauty, the colors and the sense of relaxation of the islands he loves. He envisions a world in which beauty is as important as function, where culture and history are fiercely preserved, and where islands are havens to be protected. Guillermo grew up listening to his father's tales of Cuba, the vibrance, life, and beauty of the once advanced country described by his father inspired him to recreate that essence of life in all of his paintings. Paired with his love of impressionism, and the nature he's surrounded by every day, he sought to broaden the reach of Cuban-Impressionism with his unique approach. Guillermo's art has been featured in select art museums around the world, and now he wants to make his art more accessible.

"These days most merch companies won't give a musician a second look unless they can show they make money already. I'm not here for that. I'm here to grow with [musicians] I want to be friends with my endorsees. Otherwise, what's the point?" Says Richard. Join him and Guillermo as they paint the world in their own colors.
We're so proud to have designed this logo, because it represents so much for us. The skull and crossbones is viewed as macabre, scary, creepy, and even just downright ugly. But to us it represents life, "Memento Mori" as they call it. Life is short, confusing, and difficult sometimes, so we look to the logo, and what it symbolizes, to remind us that even though life is short, even though it's difficult and the road ahead may never look clear, we should enjoy and live this life to the fullest, and chase our dreams.
