It's really nice to see how graffiti it's having finally it's recognition as an art form and a way of expression. In fact, a great part of the contemporary artists came from this background, as graffiti is a democratic and open culture what differs from classic fine art that's more formal. Victor Reyes is one example of this recent situation.

If you want to see more of Victor Reyes, take a look at his Website.



Since the early 90s, Victor Reyes has been painting. His work has been shown extensively in countries around the world, including the group show titled Letters First (2006) which traveled to Tokyo, Taipei, Korea, and Barcelona, Public Provocation (2008) at Carhartt Gallery, Weil am Rein, Germany, Will Rise group show (2010) as Yves Laroche Gallery, Montreal, Canada and Misspelled (2010), a solo show at Robert Berman E6 Gallery, San Francisco. Misspelled was culminated through an experiment in typography in which Reyes painted all 26 letters of the alphabet in the Mission and he published a 104-page book for the exhibition under the same name.
