Tiger N is a street artist born in Hidalgo Michoacan, Mexico.
He started painting with his friends from high school 8 years ago. He says that he wasn’t good at painting letters, however, he has always enjoyed drawing portraits.
I asked Tiger a couple of questions about his work and plans for the future:
How would you describe your style?
“My style is as realistic and surreal, and I try to combine real images with a more metaphorical sense that differs from reality.”
Do you have someone who has been an inspiration to you/who influenced your work?
“Yes, I have had many but the one that influenced me the most is the Maclaim Crew.”
I was curious if Tiger N has ever had any problems with the police, but he shared that they only approached him while painting on a legal wall.
He likes to combine vibrant graffiti with realistic figures.
What would you like to achieve in the future?
“I would like to paint on buildings, now I just paint in small format or small walls.“
I wish Tiger all the best and hope to see his larger murals soon!
