Tec
Born in Cordoba, Argentina
The artist currently lives in São Paulo, Brasil.

His artistic trajectory can be divided in three periods. The artist stayed in his hometown until the age of fifteen and then moved to Buenos Aires where he had his first contact with art. That moment, Tec, started painting the walls of the streets of the capital of Argentina promoting his rock band, Ocote.

From that moment, the artist created dialoguing directly with the football universe, the rock bands and the graphite in its inscription shape calligraphed. He signed his work using two pseudonyms: Sade and Tec. With time he decided to stay only with Tec. The second moment of his career happened when he entered in college of graphic design at university of Buenos Aires.

In 2000, he joined the artistic collective, FASE. Developed to be a fanzine, soon the collective raises new flights and occupies the streets with artistic interventions, that goes since lambe-lambe and stencil until paintings with roller, something unusual in the streets of Argentina.

In 2005, FASE represented Argentina in the cinema festival in Berlin with the short film Futbol 05, which is part of the audivisual content of worldwide footbal from Gremany in 2006.

From this experience the artist developed an intense muralist activity in Buenos Aires and Cordoba, revaluing the scene of  Latin American urban art and working collectively for the revitalization of public space.

At the same time Tec worked in advertising agencies and film producer which provided technical expertise to film and to produce RUTA 9, a documentary of rural art self-filmed. Driving a Renault 4 the artist travelled the road linking the city of Cordoba to Buenos Aires filming the experience of painting abandoned buildings.

Internationally recognized with the showing “De Dentro e De Fora” (inside and outside) held at the Museum of Art of Sao Paulo (MASP), Tec decided to reside in São Paulo where he has his studio, develops exhibitions and makes drawings on asphalt in large slopes from the city of Sao Paulo. His last work, that channeled all his artistic influences, was the World Cup held in Brasil. His drawings stamped a large flag that was opened on the football field of the Arena Corinthians, in São Paulo, at the opening ceremony of the Fifa World Cup 2014
