Vermibus, born in Mallorca in 1987, moved to Madrid in 2003 and was originally active there as a photographer in the fashion scene. He has lived in Berlin since 2010. He came to greater prominence with a form of adbusting. He steals advertising posters from public spaces and manipulates the people depicted with solvents that dissolve the colours on the offset prints. He then reintroduces these manipulated posters into the streetscape in other places. One of his aims is to reclaim public space that looks stolen by big companies and to question the ideals of beauty that currently prevail in advertising and the media. He is active throughout Europe and there is extensive video and photo documentation of his work.
