Sit Downs: Interview with Nepo


Nepo for the 317 gallery

It has been two years since artist Nepo made the move to New York City, leaving behind—for now at least—his native Puerto Rico where he has long been a part of the established street art scene. Like many of his fellow street artists, he got his start as a teenager illegally spray painting graffiti on outdoor public spaces. Today, the graduate of Puerto Rico’s La Escuela de Artes Plásticas is known for his surreal and brightly colored murals depicting all kinds of fantastical flora and fauna. </
