Spok

Artist Bio:

Born in Madrid where he lives, Spok is a Fine Arts graduate that has developed his craft for over 20 years. In that time he has created more than 30 public artworks and exhibitions in over 10 countries.

Spok discovered graffiti as a kid in the early 90s and with much perseverance, created his own style between 1994 and 2003, ‘bombing’ walls and trains while representing the TBC crew. From his beginnings up until today he has kept the same high quality in his pieces, both on walls and in his studio, while also experimenting with colours and forms, always searching for something new.

Due to the constant evolution in his style and technique, Spok is highly regarded for his originality and authenticity in illustration or décor, as a muralist and even in academic painting. Never replicating murals or canvases, he mixes lettering with mechanical and robotic references, creating playful imaginary characters.
