“If that makes me or my art kinky then I’m okay with it, but there is also a very sentimental part in it, because we are all talking about desire in the end, both required and unrequited” – Interview with Cachorro Lozano, outtake of PNPPL zine 03.
Can you take us through the timeline how you become an artist?
Well, with time I realised it were my emotions and my low moments that led me here. I had a breakup with my first bf and I felt like I needed to study arts. During my degree I was making a lot of performance and sex related photography. When I broke up with my second boyfriend, I moved to Madrid. There I started drawing him because I was full of rage and sadness but also horny and excited for all the new relations i was making and the amazing sex I was having. Some friends liked it and thought I should go on drawing men. That’s how I started drawing a register of my lovers.
Where are you finding ideas for your work?
I get inspired by many things. They are all related to my animic state. I can draw for one week nonstop and stop drawing for a month if I don’t feel empowered. My art is emotional, not technical at all. My own life is translated into my drawings, also my previous experiences take part sometimes and the ones I hope one day will happen. I take also a lot inspiration from random writings I find in books in markets. Pictures I took and keep on taking. Stories my friends tell me about their hookups…
Your characters and subjects are often kinky. Do you find the ideas for the pictures in your life?
Are they? I just feel they are a reflection of how I am and what I like. I have a particular relationship with my sexuality that I like to express through my pictures. If that makes me or my art kinky then I’m okay with it, but there is also a very sentimental part in it, because we are all talking about desire in the end, both required and unrequited.
Aside of drawing which one is your favorite art?
I think that would be photography. For me it’s a similar process, but faster and more accurate to reality. It depends on what you have in front of you rather than what is inside you. I am working on a publication of cocks and plants , two of my favourite things and the ones I usually take pictures of. So stay tuned because it’s going to be something really beautiful and sexy. I also make a lot of music but I have not published anything yet, and I just started djing… But for now I would say photography, for sure.
You are often modelled for photographers, What do you enjoy in modelling the most?
I love to see how the body changes trough time. That’s why I enjoy fitness and pole dance. There is something awesome about constructing your own shape how you want it, modelling your body at your own request and likes… being portrayed by someone and being able to see how time has passed and bodies transform is an incredible sensation. Also, every photographer has its own perspective of you so it’s very interesting to see all those different approaches to the body you see everyday.
Your favorite word is…?
‘Tornado’ is a word I really like. It’s twister in Spanish. In front of my bed I have it written in green. ‘Carne’ also, which means meat. I like words that with strong phonems. And listen to this: ‘rabo de toro’. It means bull’s tail, a delicious Spanish food, and a beautiful expression, quite sexual I would say btw, use it carefully.
Spit or swallow?
If there is love, there is swallowing. That’s my life motto.
Which one is your favorite tattoo on you and why?
I tattooed myself a cowboy kid in my left arm some years ago, and I’m quite in love with this drawing . I found it in an exhibition that worked like a library of references. I searched for the word Cachorro and the drawing appeared. I thought of stealing it but a friend of mine wouldn’t let me, so instead of that, I tattooed it. He has a really nice hat, curly hair, a moustache and a big bow on his neck.
What is Cachorro’s go-to Saturday night film?
Any smart comedy with female leading characters. Like ‘The first wives
club’, a film I love since I was a child. No intense movies during the weekend, please.
What are your memories of your first night with a guy?
I was camping in summer near the coast when I as a teenager. There was a big swimming pool and a friend an I used to stay until late so that we could have a bath at night even if it was prohibited. That night when we finished, it was so cold we decided to go to the collective showers before going to sleep. We were both naked in the same space and both really hard, which was kind of weird because at that time none of us was gay (I mean, officially) . We started feeling each other cocks. Things got heated very fast and we spent the night together. Those Summer nights….!
What makes you feel alive?
Self confidence. A breathtaking blowjob. Trust. Techno music. French fries. Wearing 20cm platforms. A new box of wax crayons. Driving my car fast. And desire. DESIRE!
Do you have a nickname for your trouser-snake?
I do, but it’s so embarrassing I would die right here if I told you.
