Yuvi

Describing himself as a graffiti-inspired pop artist, Yuvi says, "The street as the graffiti artist's primary source of inspiration makes the work accessible, authentic and relatable." The animation and vibrancy of each piece takes us right back to the streets that inspired them and has won him exhibitions and admirers in places as diverse as New York and New Delhi. We are proud to introduce his work in Sweden for the first time.

My Story

Born in the 1970s, Yuvi spent much of his early life in a hipster neighborhood known as Florentine which is now the heart of the city's graffiti scene. Yuvi grew up surrounded by graffiti, music, politics and the social agenda of a city with a hugely cosmopolitan character. All these influences combined to ignite his imagination and direct his creative and stormy personality into highly expressive and vivid artistic statements.

After studying graphic design, he spent some time traveling around Europe and living in the United States. Exposure to more diverse cultures, aesthetic styles and artistic expressions allowed him to take his art to new and exciting levels and he was inspired by such American icons as Andy Warhol and the elusive and controversial British artist Banksy and the ever-growing pop art artist Mr Brainwash .

Yuvi combines traditional technology with digital technology. His characters and their settings are shaped from paint, paper clippings, layers of old newspaper clippings, sketches, silk screen prints, various glues, inks, spray paints, sand, glass fragments and more. He often uses only his hands which means he has an intense physical relationship with each piece he creates; to look at his hands after a day in his studio is to understand his dedication, passion and love for his work. The finished composition is intensely tactile and the viewer is invited to feel the work with their own hands.
