Rafael Sliks was a child in the 80s, he loved comics, martial arts films, skateboarding and graffiti.

From the simple neighborhood of beautiful view, in the central region of São Paulo, where he was born and raised, he looked at the vast world through a crack in the door of his house.

From pixo to graffiti, from handstyle to tags, he arrived at abstract essays that today mark his skills, “skills” that he uses with inverted writing led to his codename: Sliks.

For him, writing is representing the spoken, the thought. “Handwriting”, poems and music that he creates mentally are reflected in his abstract ideas, tangible textures, imagined forms.

At the heart of the work, representations of his poems, songs that mirror the chaos of big cities, charms of wild nature, pure expressions and at the same time loaded with layers of microorganisms, odors, colors, luminescences.

Sliks’ creative equation results from his constant journey in and out of himself. In the results the constant research, the focused study of art history, experiences in his studio and around the world, the creation of a personal style, which adds Lascaux’s signs, oriental ideograms, Da Vinci’s secrets, Magrite’s daydreams, dares of Yves Klein.

His work, in permanent catharsis, is part of the gesture, a great influence on graffiti, skateboarding and movements inspired by Tao, oriental calligraphy and keeps abstractionism as a password, with a continuous rhythm and an essential look.

Heir to abstract expressionism, the automatic writing of the surrealists, his art recovers childhood doodles, brings to the surface his universe of quick gestures and flashes of stealth.

His subtle and mysterious figure distributes abstractions and freehand writing through the streets and alleys, amidst textures and obstacles, an art that inspires, seduces by lightness and enriches his fate as a contemporary urban visual artist.
