BERLIN | GERMANY
Story continues..a broken deal and the chance to paint in Yard5 Festival lead me to Berlin this summer, life is Grand!
The biggest challenges I face as an Artist is to work different jobs in order to raise money to create my art, long shifts boring people can take your focus away and hold you back. It's that time again that you gonna have to make the tough decision, choosing time instead of money and realize what matters the most to you.
Landed in Berlin made me inspired again by the moment I walked around the City, Graffiti is literally everywhere and it only makes sense how this is one of the top places for Urban Art in the World. Walked in RAW-Gelande amazed by the Street Art and the Hundreds of People involved in Yard5 Festival hosted by Yard5 Graffiti Store I left my mark once again , followed by Mauer Park I painted a Quick-Piece in one of the City's most famous Hall of Fame.

-End of a Cycle-
Leaving another mark in time with 2018 being one of my Greatest Year as an Artist and my 15th Anniversary of doing Graffiti. This was a very hard working year for me everything I accomplished based on pushing my limits to overcome obstacles working in daily base to create and achieve my goals the sacrifice was high stress levels, minimum free time and rest.
2018 feels like the End of a Cycle for me and with everything I learned and being through so far I'm ready to face 2019 starting a New one. I can't wait to see what 2019 will bring every year is a Blessing, Go out there and chase your Dreams!
My wish for 2019 is everyone to have better Luck! Something you can't have by just hard work and will!
Happy New Year !!!

Behind The Scenes
I Write SNUZ. I've been recording sessions of my work for about two years, trying put them together and bring out my verse of how it feels as Graffiti Writer. In these series of videos I go behind the Scenes. Most of the content is recorded by me and few friends. The idea is to show my perspective of things as an Artist into different continues episodes.

' Another Year Passing us by '
Happy New Year 2018!!!
Another Year passing us by...time flies. 2017 started the worst way possible for me, so many struggles and emotional breaks happened during this year. Been through a lot this time so many changes but I had to move on with it and maintain to what I believe and keep up with my life. It's important to have something to hold on and never give up.
It was hard to stay focused on Graffiti and Paint with all that going on, limited time free and moving every few months, but somehow I feel satisfied with everything I've manage to get done. Made my first ever Paintings and canvas, my own website and experimented more.. Feels like I realized more ways to improve and evolve my Style. I know things are gonna get really serious next year! 2018 will be my 15th Anniversary as a Graffiti Writer. Been doing this More than half of my life now...
Dark days are over and I see Light ahead.. I' ve come a long way within one year, Moved in another Country seeking new opportunities and chances, I can't wait bring it to the next level at 2018, hopefully will blow!

I drawed this piece back to 2015...I remember her sleeping next to me and I wanted to keep this moment sealed forever in my mind. So I grabbed a pencil and my blackbook and started drawing her silhouette...I was keeping this sketch hidden for the moment. They say all good things come to an end after all. So this is for you..it's been amazing all these years..thank you for your support, love and trust in me.
Few months ago they entrusted me to paint some walls inside the municipal Theatre of my town. There was no plan to go with, they asked me to restore some old walls and paint them with my Style. I made the whole thing freestyle and the result came out pretty well for everyone!
Thanks for giving me the chance to paint and leaving my mark on a historical for my city building.
S N U Z
I started doing graffiti at the age of Twelve, I always wanted my letters to be different than all other styles and be unique, so they can recognize that it's me even if they don't realize what it says. I always try to give my letters movement and contrast in colors so people who don't like graffiti see my work and appreciate what they see even if they don't get it!
I do this 100% for me and it's only personal issue of me expressing myself the best way I know. It's not about the fame or getting the attention it's all about what I do, this is me!
I write SNUZ and That's my Style! You can hate it or love it but you can't ignore it!
SNUZ Final Piece 2016
' I N F I N I T Y '
The style I picked to be my last wall for 2016 is something I made back on summer 2015, I was holding back on this one for a long time, but you know what they say...timing is everything! I wanted to express the infinite version of my style and take it to the next level where there's no limits! The abandoned spot was the perfect fit to make contrast of colours that giving life where it doesn't exist.
Happy New Year
As we say goodbye to 2016 leaving behind all bad things and keeping only the best memories, I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year!!! 2017 will be a really interesting year, there's a lot of things I want to do, things that I had in store for a while waiting for the right moment to pull out and other things I haven't done yet but can't wait to see them happen. Let's see how far this dream can take me...
Thanks Everyone Supporting me, family, friends and those checking out my site, at December you guys almost exceed the traffic limit! So thank you!!
Stay tuned for more great things to Come!
