Nano Abia

(Vigo, 1978)

Nano4814 is an artist born in the small galician town of Vigo, were he started to use the streets as a place for self expression in the mid 90s. Originally inspired by the character forms of traditional graffiti writing, his figures soon started to load themselves with narrative and iconic particularities, developing his own creative world, either aesthetically and conceptually speaking. In this world the inner sense meets the observation of the outside world and together they become strange partners in the quest for hidden (in)coherence. After studying fine arts and passing through a brief formative stage in London, in such prestigious schools as Saint Martins School of Arts and the London College of Printing, he moves to Madrid in 2004 where he develops his work as an artist, exhibiting in galleries and participating in different projects both in Spain and abroad, bringing inside his own experience working outdoors and questioning personal subjects in a strange context.
