about Killa Was Here

Porto (Portugal), 1997

Killa Was Here is a 26 year old Portuguese artist born in the city of Porto. He took his first steps in the art scene as a youngster, painting graffiti on abandoned factories with his friends in Porto and sketching every schoolbook he had Killa Was Here is a direct reflection of the artist’s livings, focusing most of his work around themes such as love and death. Each painting tells a story about the artist, he's personal life, or some external factor that has somehow touched the artist. In Killa's art work we can often find some of his iconic motifes such as the killa smiley face, metamorfose butterflies and the "Killaz" teddy. Despite the joyful and vivid colors present in the young artist's work, which end up transmitting a happy and cheerful appearance, Killa's art is often related to dark and twisted inspirations.
