Krayon is an Italian pixel artist born in Melfi, based in Rome. Accompanied by his artistic partner Gabry, fundamental in the ideational and realization phase of their works, after studying industrial and graphic design, he develops a particular language with which he has been distinguished for years. The pixel is the basic element on which he builds his works with patience and precision. His work reveals the design scheme and the management of the image in its complexity. He has always been influenced by the classical-scientific arts, from Seurat's neo-impressionism to Vasarely's optical art. During his artistic career he has painted for many festivals such as Vedo a Colori (Civitanova Marche), ManuFactory (Comacchio), Blue Flow (Ventotene), Streetart Wine Fest (Marsala), In wall we trust (Airola).

In 2015 they created TEXTURA in fest, the first street art festival in their hometown. In 2018 the duo was hosted in Shenzhen by Jardin Orange for an artistic residency and exhibited during the Shenzhen International Art Fair and Hong Kong Affordable art fair. Some works on canvas have entered the permanent collections of the HQB Museum in Shenzhen and the Bank of Italy.
