Instagram is where creative and talented people come together and find the perfect platform for self expression and creativity. wants to contribute to your discovery of surprising and creative users from all walks of life. Their common denominator? They are people addicted to Instagram telling their stories about small portions of their lives through their pictures, revealing their passions and sharing their best Instagram tips.

Today we are happy and honoured to introduce you to Jesús Castillo Ruiz.




“Hi! My name is Jesús Castillo Ruiz. I’m a graphic designer who lives in Mexico City. I work for the Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera Museums.


I come from a family with lots of beautiful women, so i’ve always felt very close to my feminine side and try to capture that in my pics. I don’t consider myself a professional photographer, that’s why i’m really happy with the positive response that people have given to my pics.



My passion for pink began very early in my life. I have a picture in which i’m about 4 years old and i’m holding a pink balloon in my hands. I swear i can remember that day and I clearly remember I chose that balloon because it was pink. To me pink is not only a color, is a state of mind. When i think pink, my mood and my days get better; pink is warm and tender but above all I think is the perfect representation of the most beautiful feelings a person can have.”

A super power you would like to have: this is a tough one… When i was little, i used to play having super powers like telekinesis, flying or teleportation… and more.

If you ruled the world: everything would be pastel tones and pink, there would be no wars, no sadness, all people living life in peace, like in that Lennon song.

A song that best describes you: I would say… “Kiss me” by Sixpence None the Richer: romantic, sweet and classic.

Your hobbies: taking pictures, drawing, movies, going out with friends.

A trip you dream of: Paris is my biggest dream.

A quote: “Love is the closest think we have to magic”
