SEBAS VELASCO has drawn since he was a small child, but only in 2004 he began painting graffiti on the walls of his home town. Afterwards, he moved to Bilbao where he graduated in Fine Arts, getting in touch with and specializing in painting. The artist deals with an enviable technique naturalism. Materials used are oil, acrylic, spray and pencils.
Sebas has been maintaining a continuous activity in the street, painting walls in different Spanish and European cities. It is in the streets where he finds inspiration for his work.
He spent some time in Poland painting a great piece in Warsaw called “Warszawa Wschodnia (Eastern Warsaw).” This mural is a typical example of his signature mix between portrayal and local, almost exclusively night time elements. From brickwall texture to bright color tones juxtaposing against weathered color of the building, the well composed mural have a striking appearance within its surrounding.
