Nelio was in Buenos Aires until recently. He’d been living and working there for five months: learning Spanish, collaborating with local artists, and not being cold in Northern Europe. He’s just finished painting at the Le M.U.R. XIII project, in Paris’ 13th Arrondissement, pictured above, the second ephemeral art space of its kind in the city.
Here’s an interview we made with him in Buenos Aires, in which he discusses his artistic background and influences, his experience painting in South America and Australia, how the internet has made it possible for him to make a living as professional artist, and about a street art discourse.
