GVIIIE (Guillermo López)
(Spain, 1992)


GVIIIE was born in the Madrid neighborhood of Prosperidad and has been drawing since always. He quickly abandons drawing classes but not the instruments, which he uses informally and self-taught on a daily basis. Started with graffiti during adolescence. He studied at the School of Art 10 after not being selected in Fine Arts and ceases all artistic activity momentarily. In 2013, he finished his film studies at the University of the Arts in London and returned to Madrid. Then, he meets the walls again and begins to develop his neo-rupestrian style, without yet achieving a stable work discipline. At the same time, he collaborates with the satirical newspaper Mongolia under the artistic name of Guille Joder and his animated short ‘Abayomi’ is shortlisted for the Goya Awards. He combines his activity in the comic and graphic novel with sporadic works ranging from the making of videos on TVE to artistic direction in ELLE Spain.

Currently, he paints walls almost daily. His last two individual exhibitions at La Causa Galería, in September 2018 (Naturalezas Vivas) and September 2019 (Internet Wound), were very well received by the public.
