Iker Muro (MurOne) is an illustrator and graphic designer who began creating public murals in 2002. Born in Bilbao, Spain, Muro describes his work as “an acid mixture of pop culture, graffiti, illustration and graphic design.” As a youth, he began painting on skateboards, and drawing caricatures of teachers and classmates at his desk in the back of the classroom. He went on to complete his studies in graphic design and has worked in many different disciplines including graffiti, graphic design, prints and large-scale murals.
Muro’s vibrant, bold murals strike a distinctive balance between design and art. His work draws from his extensive international travels, and he takes inspiration from whatever city he is painting in. “Traveling and discovering different cultures is a gift,” he says. “I feel lucky to make my living with what I love, I don’t know what will happen in the future, I don’t have a job and a stable life, but painting and giving life to places that don’t have any is very gratifying.”
