Solomostry in Italian means “only monsters”.
SOLOMOSTRY was born in Milan, 1988. Solomostry in Italian means “only monsters”. A monochrome monster composed of lines with imposing and staring eyes. Solomostry is not only the main character of the artist’s art works but also his alias. Solomostry has since obtained a degree in graphic design & art direction and works in his studio in Milan. In Solomostry’s artistic practice the streets represent the place where he discovered a unique form of art as well as a kind of playground where he dares new techniques, tools and ideas without any rules. Freedom in the streets means a lot to him. Whereas in the studio he reflects and digests what he just experienced in the streets and tries to implement and manifest it his studio-based paintings.
Solomostry’s draws his inspiration from really everything that attracts his attention. He is inspired by the streets itself, its inhabitants, friends, loved-ones and rivals. He is convinced that, traveling but also information and sensory experience are the source of inspiration – always being continuous.
