El Pez, “The Fish” in Spanish, started painting in 1999 on the streets of Barcelona. At the begining he used to tag his signature, and soon it evolved into a fish with a very distinctive and wide smile. El Pez was born! He’d found the huge smile a way to pass on good vibrations to the people on the streets. In a few years, his artwork spread throughout Barcelona, and soon he began to travel and to paint in European cities. So he started being recognised and rose quickly thanks to his perseverance in the street and the straight language of the smile.

In the last years, he has shown his artwork in cities like NY, L.A. Tokyo, London, Miami, Paris, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Oslo, Bogota… thus becoming very international, sharing his smile around the world. These days the happy fish has lots of friends and a big family of characters that you can recognize by their huge and unique smile!
