Cheone “When street art overflows the walls”

COSIMO CAIFFA aka “CHEONE” was born in 1979, in Gallipoli a southern Italian town in the province of Lecce, in Apulia.
Today he lives and works in Nerviano in the northwestern part of the Metropolitan City of Milan.

His passion for art began as a child and his interest developed through drawing animals and cartoon characters on his school notebooks.
Influenced by a renowned painter of Gallipoli (the father of one of his buddies) he attempted for the first time to paint on canvas.  A revelation!
From that day, Cheone made the choice to become an artist !

In 1990, he moved to Germany with his family, and began his artistic career in the world of graffiti and street art .
When in Italy, in 2001, he continued to cultivate his passion and began to be recognized as one of the most creative graffiti and urban artistsof his generation.

He soon approached figurative realism and started to perform only this type of art.
Cheone sees beyond the immediate support on which he paints. He doesn’t limit his graffiti to walls only and often his work overflows onto the urban environment around … invading the roadways and sidewalks with spectacular creations.

Cheone comments “I’m a versatile artist, animated by the spirit of experimentation, always looking for different materials to paint
and to discover new techniques to use”
