Skount is the artistic identity of Jerez de la Frontera, who was born in Spain in 1985. Skount’s special style of artwork is inspired by the classic theatrical performances from his hometown and the masked characters that draw art lovers into the playful and mysterious dreamscapes that they live in.
Skount’s artistic background is specifically in street art and a large number of his early pieces of artwork can be found decorating the buildings of his Spanish hometown. While the artist enjoys experimenting with a number of different styles of art and themes, masks have always had special fascination and significance for him and he often returns to the conception of masks through his artwork.
Skount’s interest in the cultures of other countries has led him to travel around the world in search for knowledge and inspiration. His fun and colorful artwork has gained international acclaim and he has exhibited his artwork in a large number of countries around the globe including England, China, the Netherlands, Germany, France, the USA and Mexico. As Skount has noticed during his travels, masks have an important place in a large number of different cultures. Skout seeks to reflect this conception in his artwork by giving his colorful characters a number of different cultural settings that perfectly fit their unique theme mood.
