AXE Colours – Two Graffiti Friends, Now Creative Partners

Posted on May 13, 2017

Sometimes you can parlay your graffiti and Street Art practice into a career that sustains you, and many artists work hard to find opportunities that assure that they can continue to be creative. Friends since childhood and painting graffiti and murals together since 1999 in Barcelona, Adrià (Smaug) and Oriol (Gúma) together call themselves AXE Colours.

Both are interested in architecture and design and plastic arts and have done a number of commercial projects together including recently a long tunnel inside the stadium complex for the footballers del Camp Nou del Futbol Club in the city.

While Oriol practices as an architect in London and Hong Kong, Adrià is fully dedicated to AXE COLORS personally and commercially and he is currently painting a series of portraits of TV personalities and sports figures. Here’s a recent painting of TV horse racing jockey Tommy Shelby and his horse for the 12 + 1 Project – with photos by Fernando Alcalá Losa.
