Biography / CANVAZ

Inspired by old school hip hop and rock album covers, drawing on his schoolbags and jeans, Canvaz, who’s real identity remains unknown, soon started adding colour to abandoned buildings and walls in hidden alleys of his hometown of Galway, Ireland. Now his thought provoking pieces can be found all over Europe. Canvaz’s work can be found on his collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/6 in 2014.

Despite him saying that with his art, Canvaz just wants to add colour to an often times bland world, his work is a lot more than that. While his intention is to not upset people, his pieces are often thought provoking, question general public opinion or comment on current political issues. Using a wide range of techniques, like stencil, classic spray paint and urban intervention, Canvaz has left his mark on the international street art scene.
