Sliks’ artistic universe reflects the tension between the physical chaos present in urban areas and the spiritual introspection he experiences in nature. Both being his main sources of inspiration, Rafael Sliks’ art seeks to harmonize and reconcile cities and nature in a single movement, mixing the colors and vision of nature with the ultra-fast movements of his graffiti skills, and vice-versa. Blurring the lines. Ambivalence.

The art of Rafael Sliks originates in graffiti for which he has developed a renowned style made of astro fatcapped tags and throw-ups. His indoor work is fueled by colour, repetition and overlapping tags, music beats, creating visual enigmas and infinite expanses of universe.

About the artist:

Rafael Sliks, born in the Central Region of Sao Paulo, Brazil, began his artistic career in 1997, where he was strongly influenced by the style of letters in the streets. Nowadays, his artworks can be found in streets around the globe. Sliks has also exhibited his art in galleries in the United States, Europe and Australia.

The Urban Spree Art Residency Program invites Berlin-based and international artists to freely experiment at Urban Spree Galerie during intense 2-week indoor and outdoor painting sessions open to the public and leading to exhibitions.
