Biography

Ever since his emergence, Epos’ art has been closely linked to our urbanistic surroundings.

He’s been a graffiti artist from an early age but his shadow outgrew this a long time ago and he is now fully engaged with creating art in public space. He nevertheless remains faithful to his origins and takes advantage of unscrupulous principles in ‘don’t ask, just do it’ style. However, freedom and a certain form of humility are very important in his approach to the reformed. Some of his most significant works deal with allusions at the universally shared reality.
