Muralist devoted to street art, specifically to graffiti, since age 15. In parallel he studied at the Fine Arts School of Viña del Mar. Despite criticism from detractors of artistic expression in public spaces, his works won a space on the streets and buildings of Valparaiso, first, and then in cities all over the world. Based in Paris right now, he has established himself as a benchmark of street art, muralism and international graffiti, being constantly invited to festivals and exhibits related to avant-garde art in South America, Europe and the United States.
Inti was born in Valparaiso, Chile 1982. Inti´s work is mainly inspired by pre-Columbian and Andean cultures, rescuing and redefining iconography and symbols that are both ancient and contemporary. Currently, we can find his mega murals in countries as diverse as Lebanon, Norway, Bolivia, Poland, Puerto Rico, France, Canada and others. The list keeps on growing with his frequent travels.
– Inti was one of my first choices back in 2013 when we started to look for artists for No Limit 2014. Unfortunately he couldn´t make it to Sweden by then so I´m really happy that he accepted our invitation this time. Inti´s work is really iconic and his large murals are both mystic and beautiful, says curator Shai Dahan.
– I´m really looking forward to see Inti´s work in Borås. His colossal murals got a special kind of mystic energy and bright colours reminding of the latin culture. The only thing I could wish for is higher buildings in Borås, says project manager Stina Hallhagen.
No Limit is an outdoor art event inviting artists from around the world to participate in turning public spaces into an outdoor exhibition.

A warm welcome to Borås, Sweden 3-6th of September 2015.
