Ever, née Nicolás Romero, is an Argentinean street artist who began painting letter-based graffiti in the streets of Buenos Aires in the 1990s. Since then, his art has evolved into more portrait-based murals. He attributes the shift to a figurative style, in part, on his exposure to, and the influence of, Gustav Klimt, Francis Bacon and Van Gogh.

In Ever’s most recent work, he combines aerosol and brush creating an interesting contrast between the realistic portraits and the colorful, abstract ‘thought clouds’ or sneak-peek-into-the-souls of his subjects (I love those clouds!). His preference is to paint ordinary people (clearly, Mao being an exception), sometimes finding photos on the internet or picking an interesting face out on the street. In some cases, he paints his brother.
