José Porto, a.k.a. “Josh Mahaby”. Graphic and Advertising Designer; Art Director and Illustrator, born in Córdoba, Argentina, in 1982. He began his professional career at the young age of 22, in a renowned advertising agency in his hometown; and, in 2008, with only 25 years old, he settled in Alicante – Spain, after being hired by a local design agency.

After 20 years of experience in the area, he has developed an innovative technique which combines multiple disciplines, such as: spray painting, acrylics, illustration, digital art with photomontag, and Pop Art sculptures.

His passion for rock music, as well as for branding, and graphic design can be seen in every detail around his artworks.

In 2021, a piece called “Homer back to 80’s”, a 50×60 cm. acrylic paint on canvas, has also become a desired piece by a celebrity. This is how Josh’s “Homer” is now hanging on the walls of Jorge Lorenzo, 4 times moto GP world champion.
