SunkOne / Yuri van Poppel
(1975) is graffiti writer, designer and curator. He studied art history and product design in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. Since drawing was his way to express himself as a child, he got hooked on graffiti at age eleven. From graphic design for club nights he rolled into advertising winning multiple awards for his creative work. Simultaneously he was invited to participate in various national and international projects and exhibitions with his graffiti work.
With @glazedgraffiti he is the first ever to spray ceramic glazes using custom built spray cans, capturing the raw energy of street writing in a new medium. Yuri has long been part of street- and counterculture, and has always been fascinated by it. The influence of what once were marginal subcultures on mainstream popular culture is clearly visible in today’s world, and in his work.See all available works
