Biography / Axel Void

Axel Void is a Spanish street artist, known for his often shocking and dark artworks address psychological and social problems that are emphasized by his technique that is influenced by classical painting and drawing.

Alexjandro Hugo Dorda Mevs, born to a Haitian mother and a Spanish father in Miami, moved to Spain at the age of three where he started writing graffiti around the age of 13 in the late 1990s. In his work, Void processes his multicultural roots and upbringing as well as his experiences from traveling. While many of these creations are equally dark in their very essence, sometimes even shocking, he does try to add fragments of everyday beauty that he finds in mundane moments. Adding lettering on top of his artworks, he plays with the symbiosis of word and image, while at the same time naming his pieces, giving the viewer an idea of what message might lie behind it. Void, who studied fine arts in Spain, now lives and works from Miami, Florida.
