Eron (Rimini, 1973) was awarded best Italian street artist by the specialized magazine AL Magazine at the end of the 90s. He has been continuing, since then, to experiment and to improve his spray painting technique to achieve a unique and recognized pictorial result.
 
At the age of fifteen, Eron starts painting on the walls of Rimini and Bologna, where he usually hangs out at Livello 57, an underground cultural venue. Though he attends the Art School of Urbino, Eron’s real artistic training takes place on the street.
 
Famous at international level for his figurative research in the field of street art and contemporary painting, Eron has been invited to display his works in several personal and collective exhibitions all over the world, among which: Chelsea Art Museum of New York, Horizon One Gallery – Museum of Modern Art – El Cairo, Palazzo delle Esposizioni di Roma, Biennale di Venezia, Palazzo della Permanente di Milano, PAC – Padiglione Arte Contemporanea di Milano, Civic Centre Ozumba of Lagos – Nigeria, MACRO – Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Roma, Italian Cultural Institute in New York.
 
For the first time in history, with the work Forever and ever… Nei secoli dei secoli… painted by Eron in 2010, street art entered the place where Art has been transcending time for centuries: the church. The “consecration” of an art that up until the present day has been subject to a “universal prejudgement”. In 2012, MMOMA magazine, official magazine of the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, wrote an exhaustive paper about Eron for the original character and poetics of his figurative style which combines drawing and reality by mixing up their boundaries. In 2014, while painting the walls at the end of Eron solo exhibition, staff of MAR – Museo d’Arte di Ravenna – wrongly plasters a dot painted by Eron. The news spreads world-wide. Achille Bonito Oliva, a well-known Italian critic, remarks: “The eternal ambiguity between life and art…”
 
Eron creates his works on the streets and on canvas, always taking into account the surrounding environment. The works that Eron creates on urban walls often concern social issues, whereas when he uses spray paint on canvas in his studio, his figurative research goes beyond the mere representation of a subject.
