AXEL VOID (ES)
Axel Void (born Alejandro Hugo Dorda Mevs) was introduced to graffiti at the age of 13 - an experience which has strongly influenced his forms of expression and the conception of his artworks. Today, he is part of a generation of young painters who derive their dynamics from graffiti culture and urban art but are also strongly influenced by classical painting and drawing.
Born in Miami to a Haitian mother and a Spanish father, and raised in Spain from the age of three, Axel Void has studied at Contemporary Art institutions and Fine Art schools in Cádiz, Granada and Sevilla, where he remained active until moving to Berlin and then Miami in 2013, where he currently resides.
His 'Mediocre' series of murals around the world depicted local daily life filtered through selected representations from the media. Most recently, he has created a series of site-specific artworks that portray quotidian life, called the ‘Gray series’. These are large-scale artworks derived from narrative stories that reach beyond the boundaries of their immediate surroundings as opposed to what simply fits into the site’s context.
