Orpheo

lives and works in Zurich, Switzerland. He makes paintings and drawings since preschool, but he never had an exhibition yet. He was spotted by DESTROYER magazine (no.7) that had a double-page publication on his 'silkscreen prints on cardboard boxes'.



His favourite subject is 'boys', mostly streetboys and he also experiments with photography, which resulted in pictures like these:

Other works:


Due to the financial crisis Orpheo recently lost his atelier. He is not (yet) represented by any gallery. You can contact him for exhibitions, publications, etc. at electrosmog[at]gmx.ch

Very interesting feature on the elusive Orpheo. Reminds me somewhat of Banksy.
