Toxicomano Callejero *1979, Bogotá, Colombia. Lives and works in Bogotá, Colombia. *1988, Zipaquira, Colombia. Lives and works in Bogotá, Colombia.

Toxicómano Callejero is a collective currently formed by two urban artists, who since 2001 have been working with graffiti, street art, stencil and muralism. Their style is characterized by the use of high contrast images, portrait photos, old fashioned illustrations that mix with some critical, ironic or propositional messages. Their street artworks attract a lot of attention because they play with elements of the popular and current culture, punk influenced graphic design, and latin american imaginary, creating pieces with high symbolic and powerful content.
