Last couple of weeks I was invited to get part in this really beautiful project, created by the street artist, Mundano, who describes himself as a ARTivist.

Thanks to Mel Duarte and her support and to Zé Carlos and his familly who let me paint their cart! It was a special day!

The book will tell 10 short stories about people who had to fight against cancer and I made this illustration for one of those stories. I´m glad to get involved, thanks Stu!
This is probably the smallest graffiti I ever made... In a small room of a abandoned building... My little character "Waiting for Spring"
Barcelona - 2010
I was painting the other day in a abandoned building that I found here in Barcelona and the place is so beautiful, full of stuff from an old factory, offices and everything really dirty...It’s a nice place and full of surprises!
