BIO.

Sortwo has been doing art since he was 13 years old. Born and raised in the Basque Country (SPAIN), he got an appreciation for the street art around his neighborhood and it developed into his lifestyle. Art has opened doors for him and allowed him to travel to different countries and practice his passion.

 

He works with a variety of art methods, never limiting his imagination. His phenomenal style has adapted to indoor and outdoor environments, often creating detailed surrealistic paintings. His primary works are detailed murals created through the use of paint rollers, paint brushes and spray paint.

 

In the near future Sortwo hopes to continue to grow as an artist like he has done over the past few years.

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

As an artist my aim is to bridge the gap between the real and the unreal, the natural and the unnatural, and to merge the beautiful and the sublime.

 

Through my work I visit and revisit concepts that have fascinated me, scared me and intrigued me since I was a child. The results, often unpredictable, are compositions filled with symbolism and hidden meaning. Topics such as space exploration, astrology, anthropology, geometry, and the use of the empty space can often be found in my artwork, sometimes infused with a dash of surrealism and mixed with the inevitable influence of pop culture that engulfs us.

 

Therefore it is valid to say that my work relates to my own existence but it also makes part of a greater conscience ...or to be more precise, to the collective unconscious.
