Biography / SatOne

Rafael Gerlach, known as SatOne who was born in Venezuela but moved to Munich, Germany at the age of two, started writing graffiti in 1991. Using spray-paints and acrylic, he paints murals of geometric forms on walls and canvasses. Creating these forms, stylistically located somewhere between clarity and futurism, he blends classic graffiti writing techniques with a science based approach. His works can be found on his collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/11 in 2016.

What began as a hobby on an abandoned factory premises, art, over the years, became his profession. SatOne’s experimental works break the barriers of geometry, as we know it. Using all kinds of shapes, he figuratively paints a visual and tears it into distorted particles, opening up a different level of visual depth and relevance. These kaleidoscopes of great dynamic, luminous intensity and non-conformity are his way of experiencing and expressing his understanding of futurism. A studied graphic designer and illustrator, SatOne still works on commission as a freelancer within the fields of photography, design and murals for international brands such as Adidas, Burton Snowboards and Ford.
