Born in Padua, Alessio-B is an Italian contemporary stencil artist known for colorful and joyful, yet powerful messages of optimism. He started his career working in graffiti before discovering stencil. Though he’s inspired by greats such as Banksy and Blek Le Rat, Alessio-B has managed to develop a distinct style, referencing Italian culture and pop culture (ranging from the Mona Lisa to Marco Pantani), as well as subjects of positivity, love, and peace.
