Sabek

Sabek (Madrid, 1985) began his work intervening in the streets and abandoned places
around Madrid where he developed his graffiti style in the early 2000. Later he starts
to produce more figurative work experimenting with different techniques and mediums
in addition to his work on the walls.
His unmistakable style is recognized by the representation of silhouettes inspired by
nature and animals, particularly noble and powerful animals that provoke a strong
sense of respect. His work poses a reflection on the human being and his relationship
with the primal instincts.
In huge murals around the world (USA, France, Spain, Malaysia, Russia, New
Zealand...), Sabek shows us the hallmarks that make his style so recognizable. A
particular mixture of subtlety and power in perfect balance in which the shapes and
masses of flat colors, used almost as symbols, coexist perfectly with the most delicate
details. Animals represented in a minimalist way that intermingle with plant forms and
human representations in an allegory of natural balance and the energies that it
channels.
Sabek creates his compositions without making the symbols yield to the logic of what
the scene is supposed to mean, and thus their works, rather than reflecting a reality,
create it.
His studio work is shown in galleries in Spain, France and the United States.
