Turin, Italy-born Pixel Pancho has an unmistakable style, he paints whimsical robots on the streets. Unlike many street artists he has a formal background in art studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Valencia, where he obtained his degree. His style is influenced by past painters such as Joaquin Sorolla and Salvador Dali as well as more current artists like Ron English and Takashi Murakami. His love for graffiti has taken him all around the world where he’s painted huge robot-filled murals in places like Paris, Amsterdam and Warsaw. A rising star in the street art scene, he’s definitely one to watch.
Here are some of the outdoors murals he’s created that we love the most.
Pixel Pancho is currently showing a selection of his more traditional work (paintings and sculptures) in a solo exhibition called The Dead Heroes at Soze Gallery in Los Angeles.
