About

Tellas was born in Cagliari in 1985, where he grew up surrounded by Sardinian harsh lands. It’s here that Tellas’ artistic journey begins: his work is a personal and intimate vision of the natural landscape’s elements which surround him.  A meditative process that combines space and shape characterise his work.

In 2015 Tellas’ work was featured in The Urban Contemporary Art Guide edited by the Graffiti Art Magazine, he ranked amongst the world’s 100 best emerging artists of 2015.

Tellas expresses his art in different ways: drawing, painting, installations, printing techniques, audio-video productions which confirms his aim to experiment and create different art forms. He participated in many international events, but two of the most remarkable are: Artmossphere in 2014, the first Biennale Street Art in Moscow, which saw the participation of 70 artists from all over the world, and La Tour Paris Project 13, which is considered one of the most innovative contemporary art’s projects worldwide. 

He completed an extensive public art work in Cagliari, which was nominated the Italian Capital of Culture in 2015. The following year he completed several important public art works in Madrid (Spain), Perth (Australia), and his first mural painting in Helsinki (Finland).

His work also includes significant partnerships with some of the most important Italian high-fashion brands, including Ferragamo and Marni. 

With the latter, Tellas realized mural paintings and installations in two different time frames, which were later recorded in the documentary “A grande terra do Sertão”, presented at the 56th Venice Biennale.

Some of his latest public art works can be found in Klaipeda (Lithuania), Delhi (India) and Palermo (Sicily).

Tellas’ work is represented at the Wunderkammern Gallery in Rome, and at the Magma Gallery in Bologna.
