Cristian Prandea
(B. 1987)

Ever since childhood he’s been passionate about the idea of a creator and creation, eagerly searching for new ways of expression, testing every facet of the various emotions that can be found throughout his works. This curiosity somehow tries to extend itself in as many spatiotemporal directions as possible, manifesting a distortion of reality with the intention of creating a map of the unseen.

Drawn towards the mechanisms of languages, he began creating his own cryptographic writings, an approach that would later coalesce with his explorations in the visual world through various characters who are auxiliaries of texts and letters devoid of their linguistic meaning trying to camouflage themselves as images.

Delighted by the idea of creating in a living context that is constantly changing, he discovered from the beginning street-art, a space in which he found a multitude of procedures through which a collaborative visual conversation can be created and maintained.

Interested in art and in its sequential form, he creates various experimental comics, trying to bring new points of view through forward thinking visual narratives.

A large part of his visual research deals with the creation of new characters, which try to express dimensions of human thought and contemporary states that tend to be an abstraction of the external world.
