Jellyfish Colectivo consists of Atenas Campbell, Pilo Portillo, and Kukui Herrera. Their work includes murals, paintings, digital illustrations, animations, and sculptures of abstract creatures, characters, and animals, with hand scrawled words in their particularly colorful and (graphicly) bold style. The combination of the stylized and realistic, the magical and the everyday, is influenced by their life on the border where things are not as they seem and the things you see mask hidden truths or lies.

 Manipulation is a site-specific installation commissioned by the Rubin Center. In this new series of works, Jellyfish Colectivo transform the L-Gallery with graphic imagery and visual animations painted and projected directly on the walls, wooden sculptures, and expressive large-scale paintings that results in an immersive environment full of color that evoke a multitude of expressions that call for the viewer to decipher its meanings.
