GonçaloMAR | A LITLE BIO |
The appeal was constant, it was only a matter of time, the interpretation that MAR makes of the environment that involves him as an artist must be painted.
At the age of 12 he already drew figures of his imagination with a bit of chalk in the asphalt. Over the years his professional choice was natural. During is academy course - graduated in Fashion Design in F.A.L. - he applies to a place in a Portuguese animation studio - “Magic Toons”, as a drawer. It´s by this time, in 98, that he has is first experience with graffiti.
Since then, moved by his artistic convictions, Mar looks for constant evolution together and for the graffiti movement - which is evolving globally. Works also with different national fashion brands. Know by is pairs for is characters, he stands out for the way he builds his characters and atmospheres giving them lines and shapes that make them unique. Among a lot of commissioned works-street works, individuals or collective - the “VSP_Visual Street Performance” is one of the notorious ones, a collective exhibition, one of the most important of its kind in Portugal.
He is also the mentor of “SeixalGraffit” since 2005, and took part in the international exhibition of customized tennis shoes “We Love Sneakers”, and the Eurocultured Tour in East Europe.
Nowadays, his artistic aim has to do with the exploration of new urban spaces, and with the never ending evolution in the visual field, as well as in the graphic one, that graffiti can still offer.
