Short biography of MrKas

Streetart, Graffiti


Short biography

MrKas was born in Porto (Portugal) in 1980.
His passion for art began at a young age with his father, also a painter, who had a big influence on him throughout his childhood.
MrKas started painting graffiti in the streets of Porto in 1999 when he found a full spray can lying in the street and decided to tag everywhere until he got home.
In 2010 he moved to Spain and in the following years he lived between Belgium and the United Kingdom.
Since those early street days his work can be seen in murals, canvas, museums and exhibitions all around the world.
His main inspiration is people. People and their feelings, their lives, their stories, their circumstances. Therefore traveling plays a big role.Visually he likes the idea of deconstructing an image and turning it into something unique, creating 3D effects, abstract patterns or anamorphic shapes all in a photorealistic technique.
