Zosen Bandido

Pilotów 18e
Monumental Art 2014

Zosen Bandido has created his own mythology, covering the walls and canvases with fantastical figures, whose names, histories and mutual relations are known only to the artist. His work in Zaspa, as he says himself, is a “bestiary” of his imagination.

The road for me is my life, is the road that I share with the people. We can both find and lose people on our way. My way is the way of knowledge and experience. I am open to discover new cultures, feelings, techniques an people. The road is the happiness and the life is the miracle

An active member of the Barcelona graffiti scene since the early 1990s, Zosen continues to produce projects that carry the anti-authoritarian spirit of his early days in the punk and do-it-yourself movements. After immigrating to Barcelona from Buenos Aires as an adolescent, he began to experiment with different graffiti styles, combining social criticism with amusing characters and letters. In 2001 he became a member of the celebrated crew Ovejas Negras (ONG). Though the crew has disbanded, he continues to collaborate with its former members as well as artists of different disciplines from around the world. While Zosen still paints on the streets frequently, his repertoire has expanded to performance art, printmaking, illustration and fashion design. He has shown his work in galleries in Europe, the Americas and Asia and is the co-founder of the clothing label Animal Bandido.
