Sandro Figueroa García, artistically known as Sen2, was born in 1969 and grew up in Canteras, a rough neighborhood of Santurce (Puerto Rico).
In the 1980’s his fascination with graffiti, color and letter forms took a hold of Sen2’s dreams. He chased his dreams to the streets of New York, where he began to cultivate his love for urban art creating graffiti murals and commercial works. But his vision was broader.
Sen2 evolved from spray painting wild-style pieces on trains and walls to developing mixed media works on canvases. He moved from classical New York graffiti art to a combination of graphic lettering styles with 3-D elements, imagery of pop art, and abstract art techniques.
Sen2 refers to iconic pop art as one of his art passions. One can recognize hints of Andy Warhol or Roy Lichtenstein‘s inspiration in his works, while applying his signature urban style from the streets to subtle reminders of his urbanesque childhood.
His work creates an entertaining dialogue between color and motion. Graphic elements, bold use of colors, sharp lines and subtle blends that collide intensely amongst a variation of textures and gestural splashes of color pave way for Sen2’s illustrious success with the canvas.
Besides the fine art and pop culture references, all of Sen2‘s pieces have graffiti elements in them to reflect his artistic roots, sophisticated and constantly evolving style.
Sen2 blurs the lines between graffiti and fine art. His beautiful chaos of modern and contemporary interpretations has created a signature style that collectors and art aficionados continue to admire. His love for contemporary, pop and urban art are evident in every piece.
Since 2001, his artwork has been on display around the globe, exhibiting in numerous solo and group shows in America, Canada, and throughout Europe.
Sen2 has a studio in the Bronx, New York, where he currently resides.
