Els is the last pseudonym chosen by a Catalan writer who is on his way to his 20th year of activity. During its two decades of graffiti writing, he has been profiling a style that has gone through different phases, all of them consequence of a natural evolution based on improvisation.

“Drawing is weak,” he tells us with some irony. The truth is that in his lack of preparation we find a spontaneous graffiti that has been built with the spray in the hand and not with a notebook at home. “My style has evolved by painting as much as I can,” he adds.

With a series of national references – Vino, Keis, Biz, Pegh, Defh, Pie … – and International – O’clock, Rilo, Inxs, Kegr, Banos, Pubes – that take us to the golden years of European trainwriting, Els has surprised us with an abundant selection in which he mixes commuter trains with walls and silver pieces, all of them with his quality seal . Bon appetit!

Els es el último pseudónimo elegido por un escritor catalán que va camino de cumplir 20 años en activo. Durante sus dos décadas de actividad ha ido perfilando un estilo que ha pasado por distintas fases, todas ellas consecuencia de una evolución natural basada en la improvisación.

“Dibujar es de débiles”, nos cuenta con cierta ironía. Lo cierto es que en su falta de preparación encontramos un graffiti espontáneo que se ha fraguado con el aerosol en la mano y no con un cuaderno en casa. “Mi estilo ha evolucionado a base de pintar todo lo que puedo”, añade.

Con una serie de referentes nacionales -Vino, Keis, Biz, Pegh, Defh, Pie…- e internacionales -O’clock, Rilo, Inxs, Kegr, Banos, Pubes- que nos trasladan a los años dorados del trainwriting europeo, Els nos ha sorprendido con una abundante selección en la que mezcla trenes de cercanías con muros y platas, todo ello con su particular sello de calidad. ¡Buen provecho!
