Stink Fish

Stinkfish is a Colombian street artists who uses found photographs to recreate the images on street art murals. These walls are recreated with inventions of psychedelic themes and elements.

Stinkfish was born in Mexico; however, he spent his childhood in Colombia once his parents migrated there. Initially, he began wondering around the streets of Bogotá as a child, curious about the surroundings and the variety of people. His course was never fixed, and this often presented him an opportunity to meet different people, locations, and images. When he least expected it, he had joined a group of individuals with similar interests. This group of people was interested in painting the streets illegally by using a variety of street art tools.

Stinkfish initially began making stencils around the years 2000-2001. However, it was not until 2003, in Bogotá, that he created a very intricate street art piece. This image was created in remembrance for John F. Kennedy’s murder. The artwork was that of John F. Kennedy Jr. saluting the corpse of his father. He painted the piece over and over until one day the police stopped him.

At the age of 16 or 17, Stinkfish began to write the name Stink anywhere imagined. These places included; school notebooks, desks, bathrooms, and other locations. A couple years after these experiences, he began to add fish at the end of the name. There was no specific reason on why he chose, besides the fact that he was young, discontent, and listened to punk music.
