Nacho Welles is a Spanish urban artist based in London. Nacho is a renowned graffiti writer who also goes by the name Core246, and paints with the graffiti crews Ghost Writers (GW) and Smile More Often (Smo). He has painted in street and graffiti art festivals across Europe and is the author of a sold-out series of books on graffiti, Not4 Profit. His oil painting practice began at the age of 8, and soon progressed to spray painting in abandoned factories and tunnels, creating murals with friends for fun. After finishing his fine art studies in Spain at the University of Cuenca, he moved to London in 2011, and continues creating freehand aerosol graffiti in situ, in addition to his studio practice. Nacho’s paintings on canvas reflect a mix of classic street art aesthetics, pop art and realistic portraiture, using vibrant colours and referencing popular movies, comics and videogames.
