San Juan (Puerto Rico)  - 1991

Ekosaurio is a Puerto Rican artist who felt the need to create from a very young age starting to create at the age of 15 he started in graffiti making letters and handling spraypaint. Interested in art and design, he completed a degree on Environmental Design (BArch). Despite not having received painting or drawing education, Ekosaurio considers himself a completely self-taught artist. It was in 2015 when he started to develop with his mural work; influenced by great murals and festivals in the capital of Puerto Rico.

In 2016 he settled in Barcelona to continue his master studies on design (MDes) and where he has developed his ornamental artistic stamp with vegetation skin style. His inspiration is found in nature, but mostly in flora. "Understanding an ecosystem and its value to the environment are the sources that invite you to create". Influenced by the environment where he grew up and through the use of saturated colors he represents sensations and in a certain way creates imageries that allude to happiness.

"My work speaks to anyone who relates to nature, anyone who in some moment of their life has “stopped to smell the flowers”. By creating a vegetal skin that inspires joy and serenity through color."
