Rafael (a.k.a. Sliks) was born and raised in  São Paulo, Brazil. Strongly affected by the textures of the city and its degradation by the time and the pollution, his works are the syntheses of trials on colour, thickness of the brush strokes and crossing between micro and macro to compose an artistic piece, adapting the wall painting technique known to canvas. Using different types of lines, he creates abstract pieces of art which migrates from figurative to random, synthetic and micro.
