Felipe Pantone, born in Buenos Aires, is Argentinian-Spanish and lives today in Valencia, Spain. He studied art in Leeds and gained an international reputation in the graffiti world under the name of Pantone, multiplying actions and collaborations. Being a prolific artist, his creations are visible on the walls of the whole world: from the Mesa Contemporary Arts Center to the Long Beach Museum of Art (USA) and the Palais de Tokyo (Paris), via cities as Mexico City, Osaka, Lisbon, Palestine, Italy or Australia. Invited to the 2016 edition of the Maus Festival in Malaga, the artist has completely repainted a bridge overlooking the river Guadalmedina. Felipe Pantone is the spearhead of a renewed street-art scene, which is not confined to outdoor spaces and enchains projects: majestic. frescoes, paintings, sculptures or monumental installations.
Felipe Pantone's approach is to question the current era and its propensity to place new technologies at the center of our daily lives, making us dependent on a superabundance of images and symbols. He himself is passionate about the advent of the internet that gives instant access to the entire history of mankind. The problems he addresses are contemporary and universal: movement, the notion of time, saturation, alienation and destruction.
