We are a multidisciplinary team with roots in graffiti art. Born in late 2001, Madrid, Spain. We develop our work mainly in the public space. We have carried out projects in South Africa, USA, UK, Brazil, Mexico, Georgia, Algeria, Norway, Serbia and Panamá.
We were 15 years old when we first met, while painting the walls of our neighborhood. We became friends since then. Our studio is in Madrid, but we spend the day from here to there, living among paint buckets, computers and ping- pong matches. We love what we do. We understand our work, as a tool to transform the street and to create bonds between people. We feel a responsibility with the city and time we are living in.
The term “Boa Mistura” comes from the portuguese “good mixture”, referring to diversity of careers and perspectives of each member. We painted our first mural in the late 2001. We adopted the name Boa Mistura in 2002 and in January 2010 we opened our own studio in Madrid.
