Artist of the moment………..street artist Wesr

 

Wesr is a wonderful street artist now based out of Berlin, Germany. Wesr’s government name is Danny Figueroa.

Wesr was born in Chiclayo, Peru in the year 1980. Wesr grew up in Lima, Peru.  He began making street art in 1996.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

Two art movements that have influenced and inspired the artist are Japanese manga and the Pre-Inca cultures of his home country of Peru. This culture is called the Mochica.

Wesr is also a tattoo artist.

I enjoy the narrative quality of Wesr’s work. The artist does a great job at showing how cultures change due to societal attitudes. The artist also does a great job at depicting different textures, placing a lot of detail in many works.

Below a great interview with Wesr:
