Back Alley Visual Artists: Olliemoonsta


Olliemoonsta are Naza del Rosal and Juan Rico. Two urban artists from Spain with a background in Fine Arts and Graphic Design. In 2009 they came together to form Studio Po, an illustration, graphic and web design studio, which was gradually focusing more on urban art and illustration creating the duo Olliemoonsta. 

Over the years they have created a series of paintings and digital illustrations drawn by the concept of beauty among the traditional tribes and cultures around the world and the current urban tribes and graffiti, making special enphasis using typographic illustration work. 

Olliemoonsta’s work has been seen in numerous exhibitions worldwide. In July 2011 they were invited to the International Percussion Festival of Montreal, Canada. These paintings were part of a travelling exhibition in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. In the summer of 2012 they participated in the artists' residence Beyond Time, in Poland, where in addition to their work in developing BWA Bielsko Galery in Bielsko-Biala and Targowo, were invited to several festivals to paint murals on the street. In October 2012 they were artists in residence in Pedra Sina Residence, in Madeira, Portugal, where they were invited to paint a couple of murals in the harbor of the island. 

They currently live and work in Vancouver, Canada.
