Erb Mon:

He discovered painting through photography, at the end of the nineties he began to carry out photographic essays, from the beginning the deformation of the figurative centers his interest.

At the beginning of the millennium he began to paint his first pictures in Barcelona and was fascinated by the expressive freedom of painting. At the same time, he hangs his works in the streets of Barcelona in poster format, shares walls with other urban expressions and soon discovers himself in urban art.

For years the mural took up practically all his time, forming a work that gave him the opportunity to travel through different countries and cities and develop a very personal style of communicating through colors and shapes (Pax Viam).

2012/14 Away. Series of murals, pieces and paintings where the encrypted languages form geometric and futuristic designs. The work was developed traveling through different cities and was exhibited in:

2012 Residence at Zawp (Bilbao).

2013 Residence at the Fragua (Belalcázar).

2015/16 He spent carrying out commissioned works for companies such as Heineken, Le Meridien Ra Spa Hotel and the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao

2017/20 Mur Project. Searching for popular culture, he experiments with figurative designs and nature as a motif, achieving citizen participation.

2017/21 Ethereal. Series of murals where he delves into concrete art and metaphysics as an argument.

In parallel, he works on a series of 50 digital paintings where he symbolizes visions and metaphors inspired by the alterations in consciousness he experienced under the effects of entheogens. Working digitally enabled him to create work during the extensive Mur/Ethereal tour, which took him four years on the road. This series remains unpublished.
