About Nuno Viegas
Nuno Viegas, also known as Metis, is a Portuguese artist born in Faro (1985) and raised in Quarteira. Founder of the art collective Policromia Crew, he started his artistic journey with graffiti in 1999. After completing his studies in Visual Arts at the University of Algarve, he moved to Rotterdam in the Netherlands (2014) where he discovered a new artistic identity and began to develop his painting; strongly influenced by graffiti and the hip-hop subculture. Viegas is not your average graffiti artist. Considering his young age, few can bridge the gap between graffiti culture and fine art while staying true to both as well as he does. Nuno presents us with a contrast between the visually aggressive reality of this subworld and his peaceful and clean representation in his works. His approach is a continuous tribute to all of those who dedicate part of their lives to this culture, in search of moments, for almost nothing, in the heart of a society whose main objective is the quest for money and power.
