Franco Fasoli

Franco Fasoli, more commonly known as Jaz, is one of Argentina’s best known and most talented street artists. He told Buenos Aires Street Art how his style has evolved from the most classic of porteño traditions, the tango. Jaz first started painting in the street in 1999 with a generation of young Argentine artists, and the fileteado porteño had a significant influence on his style. “With Poeta, Caru and some other guys we were talking about the idea of mixing the theme of ‘fileteado’ with graffitis. Nerf was working more with cubes but I was painting a lot with him, Poeta, Roma, Caru and Pastel with this theme of the porteño decoration.”
