INTI

Inti Castro is a graffiti artist and muralist born in the port city of Valparaíso, Chile. His name, translated into Incan means ‘Sun’. He began painting walls at around the age of thirteen and has not stopped since. Today he is one of the most recognized street artists globally. He usually paints murals on a gigantic scale, his works often take up whole sides of buildings. He has painted murals in several cities in Chile and worldwide and has participated in international festivals dedicated to the culture of street and graffiti in Norway, France, Poland, Hawaii and Lebanon amongst others. He was also one of the organizers of the Graffiti festival in Valparaiso that pays tribute to this city characterized as a cultural melting pot. Inti initially plied his trade spraying tags and letters, today he continues to use spray cans. He is recognized for his characters inspired by the Latin American syncretism of the mixture of the Spanish and indigenous heritage. These characters look very often like puppets, dolls, and usually represent the human figure as well as animals. He is also part of a crew named ’Stgo Under’ who he still occasionally paints with.

Artwork description

The Chilean muralist painted this beautiful piece which is showing one of his signature folkloric characters, ressembling a jester or a clown, with the writings “La Sed del Oro Nos Dejara Sin Agua” (“The thirst of gold will leave us waterless”). According to INTI, Gold or Water, humans will have to choose.
