ORIGIN

El graffiti como forma de vida fué lo que me hizo desembarcar en este mundo creativo; la ilustración y posteriormente el diseño abarcaron mi día a día.
Hacer graffiti es lo más gratificante que he podido sentir; plasmar a lo grande tu idea, y hacerlo con tus propias manos, sin necesidad de aparatos o artilugios, ordenadores, plotters o reglas, sin restricciones... 
Es mi origen, y aunque a veces ya queda lejos, nunca lo olvido. Después de tres años sin hacer graffiti, un día cualquiera sin más (o tal vez empujado por mi hermana) , decidí pintar de nuevo y es emocionante volver a sentir el olor, las miradas, los murmullos, la fluidez, los trazos, la improvisación, la textura, la pared, ... simplemente me encanta.
