Playing with tiles and clay in my father’s studio, studying engineering, exploring the creative freedom of graffiti… It’s all these experiences that actually make the decisions.

André Trafic is a Portuguese urban artist.

André Silva, aka Trafic, is a urban artist born in 1989, in Portugal. Currently based in Lisbon, he immerses himself in a range of mediums, spanning from ceramics to murals.

This contrast between spray painting and the instant results versus the weeks of preparation for a ceramic piece and its final result after several firings, give him a unique versatility and notion of time.

Each work is inspired in the dynamics of human existence in this planet, either between humans or in relation to the space that surrounds them. Amidst his self-exploration and constant experimentation, we can often find connections between industry and nature that nourish dialogues of Harmony into an apparently chaotic world.
