Here are a few words from him.
> When did you start getting actively involved in photography ?
At the age of 16 when I began doing graffiti.
> Was it difficult to select the photos for Vandals. Or is a good photo instantly identifiable ?
It was indeed difficult. I could have made 4 books.
> Graffiti on trains is often done at night or in dark places. Do you like taking photos without much light ?
Well, it depends on the action. Most of the time, you can’t use flash light while they’re painting…
> Do you post-process a lot your photos ?
> We all have understood you are interested in atmospheric pictures (the places, the trains, the yards…) and “action” photos ( before, during and after the painting). You don’t publish them, but do you also take photos of the finished pieces ?
Of course, I do as it is a part of it, too. But these images aren’t interesting for my work as a photographer. I’m focussing on humanity and emotions instead.
> As a former graffiti writer, is it frustrating sometimes to take some risks with people in front of a train and not painting on it?
I found a special technique to get along. It always feels like painting as well. It’s all about the action…
> Which photographers do you admire most?
> Do you know & enjoy other photographers who focused on graffiti on trains like Alex Fakso or Ruedione ?
I respect those artists and of course, I know them. Fakso was one of the first graffiti photographers, I’ve seen so far. As such, he influenced me. I like some works of will Robson scott, too. Further, I like the epic photographs of Henry Cartier Bresson or Richard Avedon and of course, there were even more photographers count.
> You are right now in L.A. Can you share with us what you are doing in California ?
I was busy with another project called wertical.com. We meet some artists such as Mr Cartoon and Marc Ryden to interview them.
Accompanied by the first sunrays since years we went out and took some photos for you grafflovers out there.
Here’s a few photo’s from Nelio’s recent exhibition at Gallery B15.
The exhibition showed a good mixture of paintings, photos, wood sculpture and print.
Have a look!
But first a few words from the gallery:
“The exhibition draws upon the ancient historical account of the tower of Babel.
The Babel tower was according to biblical accounts a tower built by a people in unison to reach the sky. But god new, that if the humans united their powers nothing would be to big a task. He hence confused the humans by giving them different languages. This account is the bibles rendering on the concept of different tongues.
Nelio has created works which fuses concepts and perceptions from ancient and strange cultures. Native tripes and rural concepts mingle with historic references, mythological understandings and subjective thoughts all refering to the account of the tower of Babel.
Nelio is one of the primary Street Artists from the 00′s. He is known from the cityscape of Barcelona, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam & Paris. The last couple of years his focus has been exploring the cities of southeast asia.
Now has come the time to show the works in front of a gallery audience. Nelio is 29 years old, and has Paris and Lyon as base.
He personally has this to say about what has influenced the work: “I like to see my artwork as a unknown language which can come from the past or the future, from humanity or any other civilization. For this reason I’m really attracted to primitive art, where you can find amazing abstract representations of the world. I also love the alphabet and symbols of old civilizations like the ancient Egyptians, the Maya. I have also been influenced by “futuristic” movements such as Suprematism, Cubism, Dadaism, Surrealism, De Stijl, Bauhaus, Op Art”..”
