Does began his work between 1988 and 1989. He entered the world of graffiti and Hip Hop in 1993. In his wild style, various influences can be observed, such as elements of indigenous art, Gothic architecture, Arabic calligraphy and tribal formats. Nowadays, he lives art, breathes graffiti taking parts to events and projects around the globe.
I started graffiti in 1988 and today still I don't know why I began. Here in Brazil it was very difficult to get some related information; in 1990 I also started to dedicate the pixação, and it was 1994, the year that I ended in a chain, because of those acts, and then on I focused only on making graffiti, but wildstyle letters.
the first graffiti magazine I saw was in 1996; I don't remember the name, but it was American, then some videos started appearing out ta bomb, and other local graffiti writers started making magazines and videos, today we have brands of sprays from Brazil, something that before was just a distant dream...
There is the HDV crew that I created in 2000 and I am also part of the ODV crew, where most of them are French, and I’m very proud to be part of the legendary FXCREW, from New York that today it’s 27 years old, and I believe it was a reference for many writers around the world.
My style developed and evolved because I loved graffiti, I've never painted for fashion, nor for fame; fame comes from the recognition of what you do.
I love painting in South America as the affection of the Latin people is incredible, I have also been to several European countries. I painted in Asia too and it was an experience where I enjoyed staying 2 weeks in Seoul...
the trip that most marked me was the times I went to Mexico, I stayed 2 months in total and speaking the local language made the trip more incredible. The exchange of culture must be the main point for this strong movement to emerge in many countries, the experience of meeting other countries is incredible.In total there were 23 countries.
Something that defines my style I believe it to be, always making a sketch of what I'm going to paint, I always liked the more aggressive and extreme form of a letter, and the sketch process I believe you are more prepared for a wildstyle.
Brazil is a country with a lot of regional culture, and each region seeks to explore it. I made graffiti in almost all states of Brazil where each state has a different culture.
For me, the main characteristics to be defined as a great graffiti writer are humility and respect for others, as without them you can have one of the best styles in the world but I will not respect you.
