Description Sen2 is one of a new generation of artists who are mixing street art, grafitti and pop in a new and dynamic way. Born in Puerto Rico in 1969, Sen2 first saw graffitti on a trip to the U.S. in the 1980s. It was love at first sight and he knew he wanted to be a graffitti painter. After moving to the U.S. in 1986 and joined "TATS Cru", a group of Bronx-based graffitti artists and street muralists whom the NYT has called a "legend" in the Bronx.

Graffitti, or street, art is as much a socio-economic as it is an artistic statement. The ubiquitous use of a "tag" to identify the artist is, in our opinion, a way for individuals or ethnic groups that have largely been excluded from the artistic main stream to assert their presence and to say: "I'm here."

Recently, Sen2 has moved from straight graffitti art to a combination of pop and graffitti--think Lichtenstein if he had painted on the street.

Sen2's work has been exhibited at the Smithsonian, Boston Center for the Arts, repeatedly in Europe and, most recently, as part of the 2013 and 2016 Urban Art Biennales at the Rammelsberg Museum in Germany.
