  Juli Capella (the curator behind BRAVOS) was born in Barcelona in 1960. First, he wanted to be a missionary, than an inventor, but what he really would have liked to have been was a rock star. He started studying design, but then got sent off to study something "more serious," architecture. When he finished his courses he didn't get hired, so he devoted himself to putting on exhibitions and writing.  Courtesy of: Copyright: ESTUDIO  RAFAEL VARGAS
