Urban artist El Pez (“fish” in Spanish), started painting in his hometown of Barcelona. He is known as the founder of the Happy Style, spreading smiles around the street art world since 1999, his work identified by his unique fish-shaped signature.
Influenced by comic and urban subcultures, he is interested in rendering the iconic and universal image of a smile into his own personal and timeless visual language. His works appear in the best-known street art books: Street Logos, Art of Rebellion, Street Art, Bcn New York, and in specialized magazines and websites.
In recent years, Pez has exhibited all over the world and his work has been shown at many other galleries, festivals and international art fairs.
