Born in France, Corona grew up in Madrid before moving to Argentina where his artistic development blossomed. Originally inspired to begin painting in the streets of Madrid under the name “Rena”, Corona’s creative trajectory took a new direction when he became exposed to the incredible street art and unique freedom found in the urban art movement of Buenos Aires.
The adoption of the name Corona signified a change in energy, style and creative direction for the young artist. Considering himself both a graffitero and muralist, Corona pushes the boundaries of graffiti by incorporating figurative elements into his paintings. In many of his recent pieces the viewer is greeted by groups of abstract regal faces with serene expressions upon elegant, elongated necks which stretch across walls. Though he increasingly explores both figurative and abstract subject matter in his colourful murals, Corona has never fully departed from his roots in letter-based graffiti.
Corona is an artist who is hugely inspired by the places and people he meets in his day-to day-life. He frequently paints with the artist Mart, and feels that there is much to learn from artistic collaboration. Corona is a prolific artist constantly exploring new techniques and styles with an ever-changing group of artists.
