He is the precursor of the Logo-Art and one of its most relevant ­gures, actively working in the gra‑ti scene from its beginning and a key stone of the street-art movement. He is inuenced by Pop Art, the gra‑ti of the urban authors, the advertising and graphic design culture, the street signal language and the history of art.

The message is capital in his work, using social concepts, ­ghting for human rights. To him, the purpose is to color walls and people minds.

“LOVEPEACERESPECTUNITYEQUALITYFREEDOM!”

LOGO ART… a new artistic trend on the gra‑ti scene, precursor of the Street-Art. The artist paints a logo, icon or character in a reiterated way. The signature is replaced by a design that acts as a logotype. This is the most eective way for the audience to be recognized, being the audience the people walking on the street according to El Xupet Negre.

The artist uses his logo and his work on the street to catch your attention and deliver his message

 “PAINT THE WALLS, SAVE THE WORLD”
