“Carlos has accommodated my needs and let me take part in the entire design and development process, from start to finish. As a professional, he wants his work to be well done, to have it fulfill its purpose and, above all, for the client to be pleased with it. I am very satisfied with the renovation of my website and with the service it has provided me for years.”
Maia Figueroa Evans,
“I have been working with Karlos for three years and our collaboration still works perfectly.
He created my artist webpage which I am very happy with – a clean and clear design, easy to view and well optimized on any device.
Maintenance and service always on time. Professional, creative, serious – this is Karlos Kaplan.”
“We at Apis Nova have been very satisfied with the work by Karlos Kaplan. Efficiency, agility, constant communication and seriousness are some of the attributes we required. He has also managed to give us the visual identity that best represents our product and the values Apis Nova stands for.”
Davide Antón Outeiro Castiñeira,
Director, Apis Nova.
“When someone has a true vocation for his work, it always ends up yielding excellent results. Karlos is a professional equally passionate about his design and his artistic work. In fact, I think that having sensitivity for artistic creation and also the technical skills to handle the latest technologies is the perfect balance for a designer in any field. From the beginning, he grasped the idea I had for both the aesthetics and the operation of my website.
He’s been very available and patient about all kinds of changes and has provided his own criteria and personal taste from the beginning, when I was hesitant and asked for his professional opinion. 200% would recommend”
María José Moreno Tristán,
Teacher and visual artist.
“I met Karlos many years ago, when we both studied at the Almería School of Art; later, we were partners for 7 years in our design studio called Globulart. Karlos is a tremendously creative and talented person; I have always been inspired by his imagination and the originality of his work, and I consider him a true friend. On more than one occasion I have referred some of my clients to him when I wasn’t available for certain projects, always with the confidence that they would be happy.”

In the artistic field
“Karlos Kaplan is not simply a photographer—he is an enabler, because he enables others to take a second, sometimes even a third look at the observed object. How does he do this? Thanks to his eye for graphic design, he finds the right details, digitally processes the original photo and, through a highly complicated process, prints it again on the material he originally photographed: wood. As flotsam of urban spaces, wood scraps can be found everywhere: boards, planks, tree fragments. Kaplan finds, collects and uses them. Fascinating works emerge, sometimes abstract, sometimes representational. The differences between analogue and digital – wood painting and digital print – blur in favour of a new view: on the material, on the world and yes, in dealing with the question—what is real?—on ourselves. To express this, to make this possible, is already an astonishing achievement.”
Frank Berger,about the “Rupture” exhibition by Karlos Kaplan
Gallerist and Manager of Kunstkonzil (Leipzig, Germany).
“Karlos Kaplan’s digital compositions bring us to the edge of melancholy at times, and at others they shake us vigorously with their strength. Strangeness is always present, both in his abstract and his figurative works. Worlds that are disturbing, dreamy, sometimes blurred, sifted by the sensitive gaze of the author: A creator of enigmatic images that make us question the nature of what we see; it’s an invitation to go beyond the plane of mere appearances and immerse ourselves in the spiritual dimension of spaces.”
Gallery owner and Manager of Galería Acanto (Almería, Spain).
“I really appreciate the spiritual sight of Karlos, which allows him to perceive the visual phenomenon as a source of discoveries and eventually human transformation.”
