Original work on canvas by Sen2: mixed media, acrylic and spray paint on canvas, with woven nylon handles, custom made printing lining with Sen2’s original Pop Art series design and leather trimmings with copper and nickel platted rivets.
The concept behind these bags are Sen2’s artistic nature closely related to fashion. For him, fashion and art are the perfect blend of creativity, ingenuity and risk. Each bag has a unique quality to it, all handmade and treated as a true work of art. Once each is completed, Sen2 continues to rework the bag to make sure all the details are according to, just like he does with his works on canvas.
About the Artist
Sandro Figueroa Garcia, artistically known as Sen2 Figueroa was born in 1969. He grew up in Canteras, a neighborhood of Santurce, Puerto Rico. In the 1980's his fascination with graffiti, color and letter forms took a hold of Sen2's dreams. He chased his dreams to the streets of New York. Here he began to cultivate his love for urban art, creating graffiti murals and commercial work, but his vision was broader. It was at this point in his life that he met and joined the most famous graffiti crew ever assembled in the world to date: Tats Cru.
Sen2 evolved from spray painting wild-style pieces to developing mixed media works on canvases. He moved from classical New York graffiti art to a combination of graphic lettering styles with 3-D elements, imagery of pop art, and abstract art techniques. His work creates an entertaining dialogue between color and motion. Graphic elements, bold use of colors, sharp lines and subtle blends that collide intensely amongst a variation of textures and gestural splashes of color pave way for Sen2's illustrious success with the canvas.
Sen2 blurs the lines between graffiti and fine art. His beautiful chaos of modern and contemporary interpretations have created a signature style that collectors and art aficionados continue to admire. His love for contemporary, pop and urban art are evident in every piece.
