“Street art is everything you see on the street that isn’t graffiti.”
To understand my work you need to know what graffiti is and its culture.
It’s not a “graffiti versus street art” challenge; it is simply different forms of expression that share the same playing field.
Every “graffiti artist”, whatever his inclination or origin, researches and studies a personal evolution, arriving at his own style in such a way as to distinguish himself from the others and to be worthy of calling himself a WRITER.
The stylistic study is based on the shape of the letterng of one’s own “street name”, or TAG; there is often a lengthy period of research that consists in preparatory sketches and inspiration that come from the environment that surrounds the writer himself.
The composition of the PIECE, or graffiti, is the result of a design process that goes from the formal reconstruction of the individual letters to how they intertwine and loop, and the stylistic elements that are loaded with a personal style that is contextualised in the time and space in which they have been conceived.
My style is based on a three-dimensional approach to lettering, through the use of light and shade that create floating volumes. The pieces are influenced and shaped by the surfaces that host them, so that they become integrated within the context, thus firmly establishing them as site-specific.
