ABOUT

Ash was born in Vigo, the most thrilling city of Galicia, Spain, in 1986. As a kid, he was fascinated by the figure of Dalí, who deeply influenced his production and conception of Art. Immersed in both the seaside and downtown lifestyles, Ash got into the local graffiti scene, putting on the bases of his surrealist and creepy iconography.

As an artist, Ash works in several fields such as illustration, painting, performance, sound and video, producing stunning pieces like the "guitar paintings", a performance in which he paints by using overloaded guitars sounds through amplifiers that create art on different mediums, or Die Fritzels, a band born as a lifelong Art project.

Anyway, he's not a musician but an Art teacher, and he loves to paint dinosaurs, monsters and sharks while he listens to Iron Maiden.
