Born in Mexico, but raised in Colombia, Stinkfish has been honing his skills on the streets of his hometown of Bogota since an early age. His murals, always bursting with color, have a stenciled portrait at their center. These portraits are taken from photos that the artist takes during his travels around the world. Stinkfish uses similar color techniques that were popularized in the pop art movement in the 50s. The portrait itself is created with only two or three colors, so the bright and varied colors of the patterns jump to the forefront.
