Alessandro Battisti alias Etnik is active in the graffiti writing scene since the early '90. He was always eager to find new ways of pushing the limit of the classical graffiti to a higher level. Therefore, he creates and organizes art events to connect the best European artists.
Since 2001 his way of painting started to develop into geometrical and architectural forms. Nevertheless, the conceptual and compositional structure of his artistic research is still based on writing and lettering. Etnik's way of representing the CITY, of criticizing it and painting the urban volumes as an abstract composition, is the way to work on different media from painting to sculpture and installation. Nowadays, he is traveling a lot for mural paintings and gallery shows
