B. 1975, Stockholm, Sweden.

Michael Rupini born in Stockholm 1975. Educated at Konstfack. Based in Stockholm/Berlin.

His colourful works might be perceived as consisting of a jumble of letters or symbols, written randomly. It signals, and reminds us of the using of tags found in graffiti culture and expression – not least because of his use of airbrush technique. Indeed Rupinis’ personal style is to be understood in the context of graffiti – but as he said himself “it was never meant as street art, nor do I come from that tradition”.
