Biography / Jaz

Franco Fasoli, who also goes by Jaz, was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1981 and has been working as a street artist since the mid 90s, yet didn’t move into painting murals until about ten years later. Borrowing techniques and mediums from scenography work, he uses latex paint, tar and gasoline, acrylic, and aerosol to bring his mind-boggling creations to life. His work can be found on his collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/10 in 2016.

Studying ceramic art, theatre scenography as well as painting, Jaz took some time before evolving his style into becoming a large-scale figurative muralist. His Lucha Libre themed artworks focus on hybrid creatures of man and beast, with both often merging into one. Using mirroring techniques he characterizes conflict and duality and references pop culture as well as local traditions. In line with the visuals, the colours used by Jaz seem to be a blend of multiple pigments, promoting the surrealism of the artwork as a whole. His pieces mostly evolve around psychological human conditions and an inner tension that we all struggle with and have made him one of the most recognized Argentinian street artists.
