As you may or may not realize by now “I made my debut in ’86” to this so called planet Earth. Since I was a kid I loved music. It showed me a different visual on the things around me. Obviously that led me into dance and the next thing I know, the artistic side of both led me into graphic design and photography.
I created the brand franco86 in 2019 to re-prezent myself as an artist. The concept stands for my work experience, the falling and always being a work in progress.

Since I was a kid I loved music. There was something about cassettes and vinyls that gave me a good feeling and started to dance right after. Later on in '98 I encountered breakin' and hip hop culture and never stopped to learn about since. Born in a small town (Zalau) in the north west of Romania I had to start travel to develop further my passion and skills. After ten years of reprezenting the crews and affiliated families in the breakin' scene, in 2008 I created the Nacultura concept to organize cultural events also to be a platform to support other artists to develop their crafts. This was an opportunity for me as well to grow and learn, being able to work with other artists from different arts (graphic design, photography, sculpture, graffiti writing). In 2010 I created my first musical moment with a pickup and vinyls through which I wanted to mark the breaks from the Romanian music. It followed by a series of mixtapes I created, each one of them having a concept, exhibition or personal experience behind. In 2017 I had the opportunity to work in Paris for a collaboration project at Cité du Cinéma on the Graphic Design field, just so in the late october of 2018 to start the Graphic Design school in London. In 2019 I started to work on my own brand Franco86, through which I want to present my work experience, the falling and always being a work in progress.
