Fernando Leon Creates “Greediness” for “12 + 1 Project” in Barcelona

Posted on August 12, 2017

Fresh out of the St. Joost Academy since last summer, the Bogota-born, Netherlands-based illustrator Fernando Leon just spent the first week of August creating this new mural called “Greediness”.

He’s been getting more of these mural-based opportunities lately, even though he began as a teen doing graffiti and confesses that he hates rules. A fan of day long drawing sessions and traveling, Leon found this project with the 12 + 1 Project outside of Barcelona to be rewarding because he is continuing to expand his vocabulary of characters and styles outside of the letter-forms he did as a teenager – and he wants to do a lot more.

Based on the successes of his commercial projects like beer bottle labels and skateboard designs, the non-stop illustrator and muralist definitely has more walls in his future.
