Speto is a graffiti artist, illustrator and graphic designer. In the graffiti world he is already what graffiti artists call 'old school'. That means that he is a painter who has been painting for a long time, and is respected and admired. He is one of the artists responsible for Brazilian graffiti's great originality.

His art develops a unique style, relating hip hop elements to a deep Brazilian popular culture research. He aggregates Brazilians northeast rustic wood engraving techniques (xilogravura) with more sophisticated image manipulation resources, always with a great sense of respect for his cultural heritage.
