This collection of original and serial works represents my years in the graffiti world, my use of color, character, symbols, experiences, meetings.. A travel around my history as a graffiti writer since the 80's until today through different canvas, silkscreens and digital prints.
This collection of original and serial works represents to this day what isi for me the art, the feeling I feel, the use of color and how to read them, mixed in different layers and textures, my hours of studio work, my dreams, reflected on canvas, wood and paper.
Water Tower Project
Back in the 1980s, when I first arrived in New York from Puerto Rico, I couldn't help but notice the city's many water towers. Finding them in every borough, I imagined the odd structures to be some sort of housing, perhaps homes for the growing immigrant population of the early 20th century. And though I soon learned that they were actually reservoirs supplying the city with water, the impression remained and the water towers became a permanent source of curiosity and inspiration.
Painting scaled-down replicas of the water towers gives me a chance to bring the wonder of my initial NYC experience to others, the pieces now residing in galleries all over the world.

Urban Art is a cultural phenomenon that spans the entire globe: art museums and galleries incorporate the works of the post-graffiti generation into their collections. Works on canvas by Urban Artists occasionally command the highest prices at auctions. The city and its streets remain the inspiration for Urban Art’s protagonists though nowadays they may not work with the spray can but instead take on the legacy of the graffiti generation with brush and canvas. The World Cultural Heritage Site at the Völklingen Ironworks has offered Urban Art a regular forum – the Urban Art Biennial.

THE EVOLUTION OF SEN2
POW! WHAM! And WOW!
A color explosion, the first solo show of Urban Art artist Sen2 in Germany.
The recognition in the works of Sen2s lies not only in the fact that he mixes various styles such as Pop Art, graffiti writing, comics and abstract expressionism, all are brought together in a harmonious composition. Sen2's dynamic and expressive brushwork, his spontaneous gestural Dripping, are of high emotion and passion. The extensive range of colors including bright and vibrant colors reflects his Puerto Rican temperament and the South American joy of life.
Topics such as the Statue of Liberty or the US American Flag refer, however, to Sen2s second home in New York - the city that has inspired him to this day and is famous for its graffiti movement.

Da Bakery was a store & art gallery that I owned and operated from 2008-2012. It was located at 174 Southern Blvd in the South Bronx. This location, directly under the 2&5 subway lines, was for me a physical manifestation of street art and graffiti culture. Both local and international artists came and expressed ideas as they exchanged blackbooks and their artistic vision. After several years the burdens of operating a retail store and gallery conflicted with traveling and doing my artwork around the world, so I closed doors to begin a new chapter in my life.
