Pez, which means “fish” in Spanish, started painting in 1999 on the outskirts of Barcelona. At first he used to write his signature, and soon it evolved into a fish.
On his website he shares that he has been searching for a universal language to comunicate with walkers – and he found the smile. One day he decided to paint a fish character with a great smile near his tag and that is how El Pez was born! The huge smile is a way to pass on good vibrations to walkers on the streets.
