Introducing Global Street Art Star BNS
Mariano, known by his tag BNS, is a Buenos Aires-born street artist, now based in Brooklyn and Barcelona. Growing up in Buenos Aires, BNS was a part of the skateboarding and graffiti scene, before spending a decade in New York City creating the murals and street art which made his name. Although now he works in a studio his overall aesthetic is still inextricably linked to his background as a street artist. His high octane portraits merge characters and ideas in a way that is creative, charismatic and completely original, and are characterised by ingenuity, dry humour and frenzied bursts of colour. Each one challenges us to examine our perspective on beauty and fame by overturning everything we thought we knew about popular culture in contemporary society.
