Born Cédric Pinterelli in Basel, Switzerland, Sweetuno is a versatile street artist who is heavily involved with the performing arts, working as a director and stage actor in the South-German town of Heidelberg. Influenced by Basel’s graffiti scene he started writing and spray-painting classic old-school graffiti on walls in the early 90s.

His works can be found on his collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/11 in 2017.

Despite having mastered various styles of old school graffiti, from tag to throw up, from simple to Wildstyle, Sweetuno’s work still relies heavily on spontaneity and experimenting with colours, style and surfaces. His search for identity within the art form is his driving force, his creativity draws its strength from inspiration he finds in paintings, advertisements and illustrations he subconsciously works into pieces. Whenever Sweetuno creates new work he wants it to fit into the surrounding environment, form it into a part of what is already there, yet have it stand out so it can convey his message of sending positive vibes to whoever pays attention to it. Sweetuno, who finished an apprenticeship in graphic design before focusing on acting and directing, continuous to live and work in Heidelberg.
