Marti Sawe was born in Barcelona in 1986. He began to write graffiti at the age of 14 and that was to radically transform his perception of the city.
He studied illustration at the La Massana art school. Following his studies, graffiti provided him with the means to combine his work as an illustrator with travel and exhibitions around the world. The contrast between the technique, control and discipline he learned from illustration and the irreverence, flow and disinhibition of graffiti is clear in all his work. His letters and drawings break from the norm and are never formulaic. A tireless explorer, SAWE taught himself animation and founded the MANSON audiovisual studio in 2014, together with three other artists.
