Born in Chile and raised in Miami, Claudio Picasso’s artistic journey began at the age of 15 when he first started painting walls. While he explored various artistic disciplines such as sculpture, printmaking, photography, and digital art, spray paint has always held a special place in Claudio’s heart for more than two decades.
With a remarkable ability to bring depth and sensitivity to his spray paint creations, Claudio occupies a unique space that bridges the worlds of graffiti and fine art. His works often employ a monochromatic palette, allowing him to focus on intricate rendering, smooth gradients, shading, and the interplay between foreground and background, positive and negative spaces. Throughout his career spanning over twenty years, Claudio has earned great acclaim as one of Miami’s most esteemed muralists, renowned for his distinctive hyper-realistic style. His portraiture draws inspiration from a wide range of sources, including the early photographic archives of the Library of Congress and other collections from the 19th and early 20th centuries.
