Inspiration

Italian-born painter D13ego is based in London. His comic book inspired paintings combine pop art and street art aesthetics while commenting on the commercialism of Western culture.

After starting his artistic career as a portrait artist at the age of 12, he worked for a local comic book illustrator. The boom of graffiti culture in the early 1990s piqued D13ego’s interest in a new medium: spray paint.

Quoting the pop art father Roy Lichtenstein amongst his major influences, the economics and maths graduate describes his style as ‘urban pop’ and often includes financial symbols. His art is born out of a love of retro comics and was originally created as a graffiti series on the streets of London.

D13ego says: “My technique consists of painstakingly hand-cutting layers of up to 30 stencils, which I then spray-paint on canvas or wood panels. The final effect spans from realistic to pure street, from portrait to collage-like optical illusion.”
