Born in Montreal, ASTRO was fuelled by the arrival of graffiti in the ’90s and dove into the movement, quickly developing a style which was unique, simple, and efficient. Influenced by European and Japanese comics, and with a clear interest in graphics, Astro portrays his small and identifiable subversive creatures, by means of wall pieces, drawings, and canvases.
“Neon Kids”, the first exhibition by the Spanish artist, presents us with a series of works which offer an intense exercise in color, combining monochrome and fluorescent qualities, which reveal characters, sometimes peaceful and sometimes terrifying, in a game of duality between innocence and the dark side.
