Pixel Pancho (b. 1984, Turin) studied formally at the Academy of Fine Arts in Albertina and finished his study in Valencia, Spain. During his education, and especially during his time in Spain, he became well known in the world of graffiti and street art. Influenced by artists such as Salvador Dali, Joaquin Sorolla, and the political artist group, El Equipo Cronica, Pixel Pancho had developed his own unique and recognizable style. Incorporating motifs of nature, industry, classical portraiture, and most commonly, robots, his paintings and murals display a finely detailed exploration of imaginative and whimsical worlds. His pieces are often narrative, weaving stories from the bodies of his human-hybrid subjects. His work can be found all over the world, from major cities in Europe, to locations in Mexico and the United States.
