Claudio Picasso – CP1 Born in Chile and raised in Miami, Claudio Picasso began painting walls at the age of 15. It was at this time that he fell in love with graffiti and it’s bold color schemes, graphic styling, monumental scale, and social commentary. Although he has studied everything from sculpture to printmaking, photography to digital art, spray paint has remained Claudio’s preferred medium for over twenty years. Crafting images with a depth and sensitivity that pushes the bounds of spray paint, Claudio occupies a space between graffiti writer and fine artist. Often times monochromatic, his works leave greater emphasis to rendering, smooth gradients, shading, and the relationship between foreground and background, positive and negative. Over the past two decades, Claudio has gained distinction as one of Miami’s most respected muralists for his unique, hyper-realistic style. His portraiture often finds inspiration in the Library of Congress’ early photographic archives, and other 19th and early 20th century photo collections.
