Biography / Stinkfish

Stinkfish is Mexico born and Columbia raised street artist. Inspired by the colourful streets in Bogotá he is best known for carrying his camera wherever he goes. His work entails how he is intrigued by the uniqueness of people, by taking random photographs of unknown people and uses them to create stencils into wonderfully, colourful mural artworks. Stinkfish’s works are featured as a part of the opening of URBAN NATION Museum in 2017.

This anonymous street artist began tagging his name as Stink since he was 16 or 17. Whether it was on a notebook, a school desk, the most abused space of them all ‘the bathrooms’, or any other spot that found his calling. A few years later, without any particular reason, he added ‘fish’ to his tag and the legend Stinkfish was born. Together with other like-minded artist they criticize the commercialization of graffiti by and while they are doing it. For him the street is a space for coexisting and sharing, believing it is within the human nature to want to leave their mark somewhere. He paints strangers’ portraits using bright colours giving them remarkable expression and thus a brand new life, with psychedelic themes and elements. This is his way of speaking for the common people. Thanks to the way he was raised he leaves a message of independence, anonymity, freedom and illegality.
