Suso33

Spain

SUSO33, an artist based in Madrid, Spain is a precursor of iconographic graffiti and experimentateur with language in that discipline, as well as a pioneer of Post-Graffiti, Street-Art and Urban Art. He is the most established artist of live painting in Spain. Using multiple art forms to convey global conceptual aspects of communication via performance (art, speech, audio and visual images - painting) to create a live 'performance painting'. As well as being an visual artist, he also is a set designer, muralist, video artist and performer. His work is controversial as it is internationally recognized in formal settings such as museums, art spaces and galleries, while its roots and continuous expression are found in public spaces, where the art form is considered illegal. By claiming the public space as his domain he seeks to express what is essential in order to communicate between artist and audience. His art is neither graffiti nor 'high art', in fact it breaks down the stereotypes and formality of both labels, focusing more on communication with an audience through a language that is effective, recognizable, poetically direct and intimate.
