BIOGRAPHY

108

1978: Born in Alessandria, northern Italy.

2006 winter solstice: dec 21th 2006 - Graduated in Design.


He started to draw very young and in the earlie 90's as a kid he wrote the first tags on the walls of his hometown. After years spent to paint only letters, at the end of the millenium, influenced by writers as Stak and a lot of non-graffiti art he has moved from working in traditional graffiti art to painting large and mysterious figures that invade public spaces. He was one of the first writers to use numbers instead of letters for his name and his firsts works known by people, of the experimental period, are enigmatic “blob”-like yellow shapes and it’s his strong intention to make visual chaos. From Alessandria his shapes appear in Milano, Ginevra, Parigi, Berlino, Londra, New york, San Francisco, Reykjavik, Roma, Zaragoza, Amsterdam... His new works are labyrinths, dead trees, dark experimental music, videos, 3D objects and installations but especially black and gloomy shapes. In 2004 he was invited to Nusign 2.4 in Paris the first international exhibition about European Post Graffiti, in Zaragoza for Segundo end Tercer Asalto and in 2007 in Venezia Arsenale for the exhibition called Walls during the Biennale 2007. During March 2008 he was invited to join Nomadaz in Los Angeles with Eltono, Dem, Microbo and other artists to represent Europe in the U.S.A.
