I was born In Lecce, in the heel of the Italian boot, but I moved to Milano 5 years ago

I started painting on walls in 2011, quite late compared to everyone else in my city

When I started the local graffiti culture was already well established, artists like Mrwany and Zenok for sure left a big mark in what my style is right now.

At the same time, social media platforms were already a thing, I won’t deny that a lot of inspiration comes from what I found online.

I remember that me and my classmates used to print the best pieces that we saw online and bring them to school to make our classmates jealous, in some drawers at my parent’s house, I still have printed a4 pages with photos of pieces from Cantwo, Daim and Dare.

In the last few years I took part in a lot of international graffiti events, and it totally changed the way I paint, I need to give a shoutout to some of the people I met around Europe that helped me improve: Sowet, Heny, Aster, Saruk, Kaser, Wios, and many more…
