Nelio is like Picasso let loose onto the street with a spray can and a sugar rush. His work blends abstract art, architecture, cubism, graphic design and - the spiritual mother of all street art - the graffiti mural. Continuing to stay true to street arts roots, Nelio uses the humble spray-can to build pieces made of cleanly cut symbols, geometric shapes, letters and sometimes facial features. Along with his other influence of ancient art, the raw shapes are like a mysterious ineffable language, communicating with you like a hieroglyphic or a piece of music.
