Roc BlackBlock

Roc studied Graphic Design at Escola Elisava in Barcelona and Illustration at Escola d’Art Serra i Abella in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat. He started his career drawing and tattooing in the late nineties. He began writing graffiti in this graphical atmosphere around 1999. As an active member collaborating with social movements, he used graffiti art as a com tool for the community, keeping the social side of his art ’til today. Roc gives his creativity and his graphic language away to the people in order to transform the walls in loudspeakers for neighbors, associations and social movements. His artwork is a meeting point between urban art and social commitment.

Roc will be painting from September 6 to 10 on the centenary of Trubia’s Casino in Trubia.

The mural made in Trubia, “Forjando comunidad”, is made for the centenary of the Trubia Casino. The piece recovers the collective memory and vindicates the value of this social space created under the wing of the now-closed weapons factory located in the town.
