STORY

SPRAYARTIST

ROXS

My name is RoxS (real name: Pascal Gruber, 28 years)and I am a fulltime artist from lower Austria.

At the beginning of 2020, I decided to turn my passion into my profession. Since then I have been working full-time as a commissioned artist. I realize various projects and commissions for companies & private customers.

I found my interest in art when I was 14 years old. I began to draw graffiti on paper. It fascinated me how letters can be designed in different ways. It did not take long and the first spray cans were bought. At the beginning I practiced on the garage wall of my parents. One graffiti piece after another was created and I was able to improve the technique.
 
Over time, my interest changed. I began to spray figural subjects & geometric shapes. A distinctive and recognizable style developed. This is characterized by exciting color combinations that create a lot of depth and dynamic. Modern, contrary and unique.
