INTRODUCING GRAFFITI ARTIST ONCE (2000NCE)
ONCE was born in Vilafreser (Catalonia). He studied a baccalaureate of letters and some cycles of ephemeral architecture and mural arts. He has always written letters and, a few years ago, began to break them down and simplify them until he reached his current style, the fruit of his evolution. He continues to be interested in classic graffiti as well as in contemporary muralism, but also in the propaganda of the Russian revolution, the Bauhaus and many other things. It belongs to the Vatua l’olla Crew, active since 2005 and composed of members from different places such as Barcelona, Menorca, Montpellier or Italy. Regarding his style, he declares “I would not say that it is abstract since I continue to see letters, although for the general public they are only geometric shapes and can make people think in abstraction.” In search of a unique harmony, ONCE seeks places and scenes where to create a unique and impactful language through straight and rounded shapes that reflect a very defined identity of his work.
