Mankey, Mario

(Sagunto, Valencia, 1985)

Behind the name of Mario Mankey, which seeks to highlight the latent contradiction between the person and the primate, this Valencian street artist living in Berlin since 2013 examines the contradictions of the contemporary individual.

Mankey got his start as a graffiti artist. His works reveal the clear influence of comics, which he combines with a gestural line which gives his output a hint of sarcasm, in the artist’s own words.
