Born in Brazil and grandson of Japanese immigrants, Guilherme Matsumoto, better known as xGuix, has been involved in the graffiti scene since 2007. His universe draws inspiration from his own life - creating a conceptual analogy between the ship that brought his Japanese ancestors to Brazil and the oceans they crossed – often embodied by his iconic fish which inhabits the streets of Brazil and sets the scenes on canvases. Additionally, the artist conveys questions and inspirations by reflecting on topics such as mental health, emotions, and time.
Throughout his career, the artist has undertaken various projects, including live painting at the Lollapalooza Festival, collaboration with major brands among which Converse, Fox Perrier. Often curated to participate in exhibitions and events to showcase his artworks, xGuix has exhibited at the renowned International Biennale of Graffiti Fine Art in 2022.
