"When I began, en las rocas de Almería, I made water drawings on the rocks. And then, after, I was living in the city for a while and I thought: these tall buildings are my mountains. La calle es mi valle. Estos pequeños side streets son mi caverna. Estas noticias y graffittis son las paredes de mis cuevas. Y entonces empecé a hacer cosas en la calle."
