The artist known as Onesto is a key player in Brazilian graffiti history. Influenced by hip hop movies from the 80's and comic books, at an early age it was clear for him how to express himself: by painting. As his work grew, he became known all over the world and was invited to a number of museums exhibitions and art events.

His work captures the essence of the street lifestyle in Brazil, and as an artist he always has something to say. Combining his love for the fantasy and the mystic aspects of drawing with his passion for the streets, it is easy to understand why Onesto occupies such an important space on Brazilian graffiti history, that´s still being written.
