Rafael Márquez Celdrán (Fafa) is an artist originally from Cazalla de la Sierra (Spain). He belongs to the second generation of Graffiti Pioniers in Seville of the 2000s and is one of the first artists to have transported traditional painting into urban culture, mixing it with graffiti. His creative soul and his natural inclination for the visual arts bring him closer, since 1998, to hip-hop culture and graffiti art, in which he immediately finds a perfect channel of expression. His passion, however, soon led him to experiment with the canvas. He abandoned spray paint in 2012, to devote himself exclusively to the use of brushes and wall paints also in the implementation of urban interventions. At the same time he continues his production in the studio. The concepts and themes he addresses in his works, whether it be canvases or murals, draw inspiration from poetry and the simplicity of everyday life. His works have as their supporting structure the design and the atmospheric use of lights and colors. The latter, always quite marked, make Fafa's style very close to the comic illustrative one. For the festival of Urban Memories he built a large wall in Terracina in 2018. He is also one of the four artists who will take part in the 2022 edition. This year's Urban Memories project includes an artist residency and the final exhibition in the ancient oil mill in the village of Maranola (Formia) with an event lasting three days. Fafa has lived and created in Switzerland since 2008. He currently resides in Basel.
