Dake 25

Dake 25 is a Belgian-Chilean artist who has been active on the graffiti scene since the early 2000s. His career began on the streets of Valparaiso, Chile, after which he turned to small screen advertising. Like many others, Dake 25 waited a few years before taking the plunge and devoting himself full-time to his passion: painting. As something of a globetrotter, he settled for four years in Bergen, Norway, where he refined his art through workshops, exhibitions and installations. He draws inspiration from his origins; between Belgium and Chile, French and Spanish. These two cultures coexist in his work. This multiculturality, which stems naturally from his personal background, is experienced as an aesthetic and human asset, easily palpable in his projects where colour, composition and the subjects treated intermingle endlessly in a surrealist universe.
