NININ

NININ was born in 1990 in Cordoba, Argentina. His initiation started at the age of 12 with the artist Marta Miliani. The year 2012 marks his professional entry into the art world with his permanent exhibition at the “Monaco Art Gallery”.
A year later, he began a journey which led him to participate in various exhibitions and collective projects in Brazil, Uruguay and France.
In 2014, he moved to Paris and he became interested in street art. In his Parisian workshop, he meets several street artists with whom he learns new techniques such as stenciling and wood carving, disciplines which will serve him to bring his creations to the walls of the city.
In his graphic universe, there are strong references to pre-Hispanic art from South America, mixed with contemporary artistic trends such as art brut and pop art. In this way, NININ mainly uses the walls of European capitals to carry out a critique of colonization in America and to revive symbols, images, legends and myths of Latin roots. What he calls "cultural contracolonization".
