Rodrigo “Solo” Mireles grew up in Chicago. He honed his flashy, slick style—a dynamic blend of hip-hop culture, anime aesthetics and formidable technical execution—on the streets of Chicago as a graffiti artist and with formal training at the American Academy of Art.
Mireles’ vast repertoire runs the gamut, from graffiti murals to comic books to character art for video games. In the past, he has worked with distinguished clients such as Electronic Arts, Adidas, Studio Gigante, Robomodo and Louis Vuitton. Currently working on a new series of paintings and a few other projects. His billboard depicting Old Dirty Bastard in Heaven with Aaliyah and Left Eye was unveiled at Wallplay for the Wu Ha | 20 20 exhibition.
