Lives and works in Valencia, Spain
Pablo Sozyone Gonzalez has worked on the line, the shape and the rhythm for over 25 years. In 1988 at the age of 15, Sozyone meets his artistic partner Smimooz, together they'll start the Hip Hop band De Puta Madre. Within a few years he becomes a reference in the whole belgian kingdom for his music, his texts and his paintings.
In 2004, Sozyone makes the jump into galleries presenting 'One Million Murders' (Alice Gallery). Between 2003 and 2013 he concentrates on one concept only : 'La Voyoucratie', portraying the most beautiful specimen of the 'milieu'; the french anarchists in bicycle or in Bmw's, the german terrorists of the 70's, the old-cats on Marseille' docks, the red spaniards, the street gangs of New York, the thief in white gloves of Place Vendôme… In 2013, Sozyone and Jaba Mathieu join for a 2 years adventure. Between Singapore, Los Angeles and Valencia, they will develop, write and finish 'ENEMIES', a 142 pages hard cover intergalactic graphic novel. (Ankama Editions, oct. 2015)
In 2015, Sozyone opens a new chapter: 'The End of Times'. A heedless universe where the peaceful characters wander in mass, aimless but alive in the core of a cold city awaiting a terror attack or a destructive wave, phone in hand hoping to immortalize the moment whichever it may be. The series 'The End' describes those moments of ante-apocalypse.
