For many years I have felt the urge to express my views about the world. I wished to find grounds for influence and to create a change. Graffiti gave me that. I found a tool to make people sympathize with my messages and feelings. Graffiti Artists inspire me when I see them stepping out of their comfort zone expressing their passionate views on the walls. I think we can get to know our society by observing graffiti art works, and that everyone can find their own connection to it.
I love people, music, abstract art, colors and shapes. I enjoy seeing how street art integrates with location, architecture and atmosphere, adding beauty and vitality to the urban jungle. My mission is to try and change the negative approach some people have towards graffiti, by presenting more aspects of it. Art is everywhere, and I believe that art is more of a way of doing things rather than the final result. In my opinion, staying open and willing to embrace new perspectives, is what makes you an artist. I think that people can benefit using that approach at all aspects of their lives.
I am an actor, living and breathing various forms of art. I am thankful for the opportunity tell a story through art, to add colors to the streets and to try and make a change. That’s part of my identity and personality. During the tours I share my personal point of view and demonstrate how graffiti has more layers than just simple spraying in public. I love the encounter with different kinds of people, and I am satisfied to see how participating in graffiti tours encourages them to look for the meaning behind the art work.
Sending a message by using graffiti is very appealing to me since it can reach everyone. I see graffiti as an important form of communication with the environment. Street art works can be motivating and eye opening as we face our everyday life routine. Graffiti is dynamic and adjusts according to society’s development and changes. I stay up to date and develop new interesting content for our graffiti tours.
I have always been drawn to art and love drawing, myself. I believe that graffiti can contribute to everyone during different life phases. Works of graffiti are presented right in front of our eyes and their message can reach everyone. I find it fascinating. Presenting art and staying anonymous at the same time, enables focusing on the art itself without any prejudice. That symbolizes freedom in my opinion. I encourage the participants in my tours to seek the meaning behind the art works and I enjoy listening to their interpretations.
Participating in a graffiti tour in Berlin when I was 16 years old was an eye-opening experience. I realized that graffiti is a powerful tool, visible in our everyday environment making it hard to ignore. That made me start “reading” the walls and seeking the meaning behind the art, and I began to recognize patterns in the beauty of the streets. I have come to realize that I am able to send a message, reach everyone and at the same time decorate the streets. I love being a tour guide and share my insights with the participants.
I love people, animals, music, languages, art, and everything with content and meaning. I think that we are privileged to have graffiti decorating our streets since it makes people stop and observe. It encourages reflective thinking and awareness. It makes people ask questions and stay open to other opinions. We can use graffiti as a way of connecting people to the streets and I think it is important.
I was born in Argentina, speak four languages, love to travel and most of all love my dog. Graffiti has great potential to make an impact on people. it is practically free and displayed in public areas. Graffiti can affect the publics’ point of view and raise awareness. Working with a young, dynamic, fresh and creative environment, is making me blossom and stay curious.

I believe that self-expression is crucial, and that graffiti is a great tool for that. All you really need is to speak from the heart, without necessarily having a comprehensive artistic education. Persistent practice and training can help you improve and lead to amazing results.
In time, I realized that I need to share my own personal stories, in order to establish a good connection with people and help open their eyes to new things.
I wish to encourage people to connect with the environment and local atmosphere. I do that by enabling encounters with art, local creators and the stories behind them.
I want to inspire and encourage creativity and self fulfilment. I introduce people to new and original artistic world. The foundation of Grafityul and the activities we offer is give me great satisfaction and my own space for rediscovery every day.
I love my job
