Grip Face (Spanish, b.1988) is a Madrid-based artist who started drawing as a child. He was attracted to the graffiti, street signs and architecture of his neighborhood and was soon experimenting with different art forms. By his early teens he was customizing friends’ skateboard grips; the nickname “Grip Face” became his pseudonym. An eclectic mix of interests and influences feed into Grip Face’s projects. Comics, personal introspection and the urban landscape all play a part, while faces, hair and hands are recurring motifs.
