Nicolás Romero Escalada aka Ever is an Argentinean street artist born in Buenos Aires in 1985. He began as a letter-based graffiti writer on the streets of his hometown in the 1990’s. Additionally, he turned towards portraits and developed a style that is more typical for paintings found in fine art galleries.
A five-month long study trip to Paris helped him to develop his own signature style as he spent hours in such art spaces like the Musée d’Orsay looking at works by Vincent van Gogh, Gustav Klimt, Francis Bacon and other widely recognized artists. He is also inspired by Mexican muralists, especially the way their art reflects the people and their social consciousness.
