Alberto León, is a Spanish self-taught artist, was born in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the(Canary Islands) in 1983. He has been working in the field of graphic design for more than 5 years. 

After several years of drawing and painting, the artist decided to use his skills in the field of graphic design. He has since developed his skills in graphic design and merged them with his other passion, urban art.

He launched his career as an artist in 2012 which coincided with his arrival in Barcelona.

It was here in this city where he began collecting torn posters from the streets and used them as an inspiration; combining them with fabrics and paints. He also uses spray paint and different materials to keep the essence of street art in his work. 

The young artist expresses himself with a total freedom in his work, rescuing icons of this past century which have marked an era in our lives. He merges these icons with everyday materials and colloquial language reflected in our day to day lives in the street. In his work, these icons are connected to the general public in an art using positive messages as well as provocative images that are made to make people reflect on the work at hand.

He continues working to expand his artwork as far as possible around the world.
