Etnik started painting at the beginning of the 90′s , travelling a lot and collaborating with several artists in Italy and Europe.
His works are big murales on conceptual subjects, creations on canvases and sculptures. The starting point of his creations is the technique of lettering.
After working for twenty years in the urban areas, he develops a new point of view of the city, very personal and original. This becomes the main subject of his work.
