Sozyone - (ES)

Sozyone Gonzalez born 1973. Lives and works in Brussels, Belguim.

Born in Brussels, influenced by his neighborhood, its stories and legends, Pablo Gonzalez works his Art around the world of Villains. In '88 he studies at Saint-Lucas Art School and meets Smimooz Exel (with whom he creates De Puta Madre) both expelled, they'll attend the Brussels Academy of Fine Arts from '90 to '96. During that period, Pablo Gonzalez will have a great interest in Metropolitan Graffitis aesthetic vandalism, and becomes officially Sozyone, with his crew R.A.B, forgetting forgery and use of forgery. 7 albums, hundreds of graffitis, stages and jams mark the time when Hip Hop was 'Fresh' and Untouchable.

In 1996 he creates with Gold Jaba, Prince Pro, Turs, Byz and Kool Recto, The UltraBoys International, asserting a new form of Graffiti. An aesthetic impregnated with marvels, abstract futuristic mathematics, alphabetical contructivism, and facial Picassonic cubism, brutally refined. A sort of Pure Graffiti Vanguard, ignoring any other vision of graffiti, made useless.

Since 2004 Sozyone exposes his work, sought by certain purist and becomes Sozyone Gonzalez for his new public, which ables him to make authenticity certificates for each one of his pieces, sculpted, engraved, painted or drawn, reminding him without a doubt of his attraction for paper.
