Axel Void was born in Miami in 1986 to a Haitian mother and a Spanish father. He was raised in Spain from the age of three, where he was strongly influenced by classical painting and drawing. Axel Void has been in contact with graffiti since 1999. He studied Fine Arts in Cádiz, Granada, and Sevilla, and based himself in Berlin until moving to Miami in 2013, where he currently resides.
The effect of his roots combination and life of travel is obvious in his art – through small bits of culture and life from everywhere he went and everyone he met. He is merging mural art, graffiti, oil and acrylic paint, creating shocking, uncomfortable and often dark pieces. These unpleasant, psychological and social issues dominating his work are repeatedly broken by ironic statements and the beauty he finds in even the most mundane of daily life.
