The Galleries And Reach Everyone
What can you expect to find in the Blog area of the website? Well, the answer is fairly simple: I have put together for you the people and work that inspire me to make art.

IZ THE WIZ
This is one of New York´s most prolific graffiti artists in history. He passed away in 2009 but his legacy is stronger than ever.

URNY AT EAST VILLAGE
This great creative duo took the walls of the East Village because of a great cause and sparked life again in a forgotten neighborhood.
