A full wall full of graffiti writings and a desire to make the world colorful and vivid: that’s how AKACORLEONE started out his career. Now he’s a renowned visual artist working with any type of medium and canvas out there - including our minds and hearts.
Funky typography, irreprochable use of color, unique characters and, of course, a dash of humour - that’s how we would describe the work of AKACORLEONE, a visual artist with both Portuguese and Swiss roots.
Underground Lisbon was his playground, but of course he didn’t stop there. His unmistakable imaginary world took over countless indoor and outdoor walls, buildings, frames and both solo and collective exhibitions all over the world.
Needless to say, he’s the definition of versatility - there’s no surface, medium or technique that can resist his desire to create. Wood, paint, bricks, spray, markers, metal, paper, an entire building - you name it, he can conquer it. Scary? Impossible? He’s never heard those words before! And above all, he’s also a ping-pong champion wannabe, in his own words. What else there is to say here, really?
We promised to continue what we started in 2017 and that we would transform our gloomy Bucharest into something amazing bit by bit. AKACORLEONE will help us keep that promise this year - so prepare your fancy outfit for the inauguration of a new mural!
