Like so many talented artists, Sixeart started out spraycanning the streets in his hometown Barcelona, back in the Eighties. These days however the vivid paintings of Sixeart are on display in international galleries and museums. Last year for instance he made a gigantic mural on the façade of Tate Modern in London.
The artist has no formal education, but being an autodidact he sees as a big advantage now: art school can teach you technique, but the danger of your own personal style being destroyed is clear and present, according to the artist.
Talking about style, his is exceptionally colourful and unique in depicting a psychedelic, comic-like universe full of strange characters and abstract patterns.
