LAPIZ started wheatpasting in the streets of New Zealand after moving there from South Africa where he had worked in HIV research. The immense cultural shock proofed to be a great source of inspiration but needed a vent which was and still is Street Art. While living in Buenos Aires the many murals inspired him to paint his thought provoking stencils on a large scale. The name LAPIZ (Spanish: ’pencil’) refers to the idea to write a story on the wall which is intended to inspire people to reflect on current issues, inequality, social media, the environment, etc.
