NANO 4814


Business Tower Hotel

Nano4814 (Vigo, 1978) begins to use the street as creative support in the mid - 90's. Originally inspired by the forms of traditional graffiti, soon his pieces are loaded with iconic and narrative features, developing their own creative world , at an aesthetic and conceptual level.

NANO 4814 is part of the art collective "El Equipo Plástico" along with the artists Eltono, Sixe Paredes and Nuria Mora. 

His work draws on various creative fields from design or illustration  to the street interventions or gallery work, which allows him to focus on more personal concepts, working with techniques such as drawing, installation, sculpture and mural painting.

"The murals of large format are common, a person who paints on the street is accustomed to paint large formats. Obviously this one is a huge format, an entire building. It is a progression while you're painting bigger, you acquire certain strategies to fit the drawing, a particular vision that is not moving from paper to the building, but a process of years working with different formats." - NANO 4814

The project was conducted over a period of 21 days, more than 100 gallons of paint were used working with a team of 8 people.

"This is a project presented by Jordi Puig, who is the architect who is doing the reform of this hotel through MORBO; I mean, he contacted Jules Bay the director of MORBO, she presented him various artists including me, he selected me because they have seen some murals in which I have worked with giant human figures and that was just what Jordi wanted." - NANO 4814
