"The Roman"

”Dream, despite illusions. Walk, despite obstacles. Fight, despite barriers and above all, believe in yourself like Roman warrior !  

 This is the description that I give to this work, inspired from the ancient roman time, a painting that has not wanted to escape the environment that lives in this land..." - Asur

Asur, born in Albufeira, Portugal, the city where he still resides today. He is the youngest of two brothers, the son of a carpenter and a seamstress. In 2007, at the age of 12, he began painting graffiti on the street, influenced by two schoolmates. Without any type of studies or training in the arts, he became a professional between 2014 and 2015 as an independent worker and artist. Techniques such as, sprays, acrylics, and digital drawing are the methods and skills that allow him to evolve as a graffiti/street-art and mural painting artist.

 Versatile at the base is the realism/photorealism spiced up with fluid lines and straight shapes, politics, social problems, and nature are today one of its inspirations.
