EDJINN recently completed a killer new wall for Contorno Urbano. Edjinn lives and works in Barcelona. He studied design in the Art School of Winchester and graphic design in the Elisava School. Illustrator and graphic designer, he’s famous for his style both naïve and satirical, as for his versatility: urban art, graffiti, illustrations, edition of the “Fine Arts” magazine, commercial works, collages, etc.
For his intervention in the April “12+1”, he told us what was the idea: “I want to contrast old people with new technologies, social networks and the new ways to interact that use young people, and the disconnection it might be for older people”. The artist also insists in that: what is important to him is that his works can stay somehow ambiguous, in order that everyone can read them their own way.
