Who is Chema-b?
My name is Chema-b. I’m a 46 years old artist from Barcelona. I paint my works on walls and recycled wood.
How has your art developed from the beginning until now?
I started painting graffiti in 1993. Soon i stopped painting letters in order to discover new art forms until i got to paint my current work.
How would you define your personal style?
I define my art as retro geometric abstraction and what i like most about it are its infinite ways of being able to order it.
Are you working full time on your art?
I’m working 50% of my time as an artist.
What would you recommend to other painters?
Never give up and keep on creating.
What do galleries and collectors appreciate about your art?
They like the combination of shapes and colors on wood and walls.
What is your favorite place to work?
I love to create in the studio as well as working in the streets.
Do you have any wishes for the future?
I hope that one day I can make a living from my art.
Looking back, what would you do differently today?
I wouldn’t waste any time and would start to create much sooner.
What inspires or motivates you?
It motivates me when i see art, colors, shapes and when walking through a big city.
Do you also work with other artists?
Yes, when painting on walls in the city.
Many thanks, Chema-b.

I’ve never been to an art school and learned all the drawing and painting techniques while spraying graffiti in the streets. This way i’ve developed my own style. So far I have exhibited in small galleries and shops.
