Pixel Pancho

Pixel Pancho (ITALY) Pixel Pancho is an Italian street artist who specializes in large murals by constantly working with an earthy color scheme to convey a more ancient feeling, Pixel creates robotic creatures inspired by different environments: the beach, the forest, the Sci-Fi universe. The artist uses a wide variety of mediums such as tiles, wall painting, sticker/poster art and more. He was born in Torino. As a child, he developed a passion for art. His grandfather was a hobby painter and taught him everything he knew about colors, shapes and the sense of art. As a result, he was soon convinced that his future lay in the art world, so he started working on his art by himself and continued that way. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Albertina and finished his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Valencia, Spain. While following his studies, and especially during his time in Spain, Pixel Pancho became well known in the world of graffiti and street art. He was inspired by life in the street and by his fellow art students. Pancho began to use the walls of the Spanish city as his canvas and expanded its collection of works. Later Pancho traveled extensively between Valencia and Torino and on his way he painted different streets. While making art he increasingly developed himself. He worked on walls and tiles and created posters and stickers.
