Person

My main research focus is street art as an artistic and social phenomenon. I have been writing about this topic since 2006 and in 2014 I published my first book entitled The Street Art World.

My most recent book, Street Art and the Environment, discusses how art may influence the relationship between humans and nature. The book was independently published by Almendros de Granada Press in June 2018.

My research on street art has led to an interest in spatial justice and the publicness of public space.

From October 2018 to May 2019 I am co-coordinating the Urban Creativity research theme at the Pufendorf Institute for Advanced Studies at Lund University.
