GVIIIE got immersed in the world of graffiti during his teenage years, combining it with Graphic Design studies in Madrid’s Escuela de Arte 10 and Cinema Studies in the University of Arts London. Painting in a range of surfaces, he has developed a distinct neo-rupestrian style.
Painting in 3 Almendro street, the artist created a work that speaks of the timeless dimension in art. He tried to capture this concept through two designs – one of an abstract of a Caravaggio painting El tañidor de laúd and the other depicting a youngster listening to music over the phone. As he explained, the experience of painting in the street is always intense, being exposed to both good and bad feedback. He would also like to raise a concern about expanding communication with the local community for better and longer health of institutional street art.
