Izak OneIzak One                       Lithuania

Izak builds a visual discourse from free hand graffiti. Working directly on the wall with spray cans, he started motivated by his brother in 1998, when both during four years painted writing “HGC crew” (Hermanos Graffiteando Calles). His references then were the New York subways seen in books and in the “12 Oz Prophet” magazine. During 2002 until 2008 he had privileged of mastering the direct design of the image using black and white. This creates a visual “silence” that expands its communicative efficiency in the over-stimulated urban landscape. From the year 2010 Izak turned back to the full color chart and is showing predominance for the woman figure as main character in his pieces. He has exhibited his works in his home country Chile as well as in Argentina, Brazil, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Latvia and Peru.
