Italy artist Awer started doing graffiti when he was fourteen—he has continued to spray paint outdoor walls, but has also worked on other surfaces from wood to metal. He mentions inventing “hypnotic creatures,” which definitely include the animals, however, quite possibly some of the weird people too. Awer’s goal is to distract spectators by allowing them to escape the troubles of everyday life.
