Graffiti artist Victoriano at Kasser Rassu
On Friday 12 June, art lovers went along to Kasser Rassu on Marbella’s Golden Mile to see the first solo show of the renowned international graffiti artist Victoriano.
As always, Shahed Kavousi and Ahmed Ashmawi gave us a wonderful evening at their elegant gallery. They even managed to arrange a beautiful sunset for the guests to enjoy.
Victoriano first picked up a spray can at the age of 17. Sixteen years later, he is now considered by many to be Spain’s top graffiti artist and one of the most renowned muralists in the western hemisphere. He has travelled the world installing graffiti commissions in some of the largest cities, including London, Dubai, Paris, Hong Kong and Los Angeles.
Originally from San Sebastian in the north of Spain, he has now made Marbella his home. Victoriano, at the age of 33, is clearly passionate about his art and was happy to enjoy the evening and spend time with as many people as he could. The turnout was impressive.
The exhibition at the Kasser Rassu Gallery is showing 40 pieces, using designer shopping bags as the canvas for each exhibit and turning an every day item into something very special. We were not too sure what to expect, but we were certainly not disappointed. We had to keep reminding ourselves that they were indeed “carrier bags”.
We would recommend you visit this exhibition. The opportunity to see his work in miniature is a special treat!
