At the age of 12 Mar was already drawing figures of his imagination with a bit of chalk on pavements.
Over the years his professional choice came naturally to him. During his academy course – graduated in Fashion Design at the F.A.L. – he applied for a job at the Portuguese animation studio “Magic Toons”, as a drawing artist. It was around this time, in ’98, that he had his first experience with graffiti.
Since then, moved by his artistic convictions, Mar looks for constant self-evolution and for the graffiti movement, which is evolving globally.
Known by his peers for his characters, he stands out for the way he builds his characters and atmosphere by giving them lines and shapes that make them unique.

Jair Martinez was born in Bogotà, Colombia in 1988 and has lived in Turin, Italy since he was 8 years old. His academic career has always been closely linked to the world of art – he started as a student at an Artistic Education Secondary School before attending the Academy of Fine Arts of Turin and then completing his artistic education in 2014 after attending the Advertising Graphics School.
During his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts of Turin he came into contact with the world of graffiti and felt the urge to explore other dimensions.
He started travelling around Europe participating in paint jams and graffiti festivals and creating a wide network, not only in the Italian, but also in the European artistic scene.
In Turin, his work and research emerges in different scenes while collaborating with and creating walls along with other artists from the region. This has led him to meet and establish close ties with extraordinary people.
Bobbie Serrano is an illustrator and artist. His work is influenced by human and animal as well as by his desire to make new experiences and trying new techniques.
With his “birds” the social worker reflects on social problems, his existence in society and the problems of intercommunication between human relationships in a simple and reduced way.
He also cooperates with partners from music, fashion and media departments and is a versatile supporter of Viva con Agua.
2UPLA are two artists from Lisbon, born in 1992. They first met in primary school and from then became good friends.
Sketching and drawing came naturally to them and by the age of ten they had their first contact with graffiti whilst exploring abandoned buildings and unfinished houses.
They ended up spending many hours working as a team and developed their own way of painting together, brainstorming, rediscovering, redrawing and stylising drawings to their fullest potential.
In 2016, they developed 2UPLA project. By working together they get to work outside of their comfort zone and constantly contribute to each other’s tasks which allows them to potentialise the results of their work.
