Tona is a street artist from Hamburg who uses the stencil as a technique.
The search for connection or communication that painting offers is central to TONA’s work. Painting breaks through all barriers because it does not require language. Whilst painting on the street he often takes pictures of the attracted audience. He then transforms these images into detailed stencils, which are in turn painted on another wall in another city and so on.
For his indoor work he enjoys scavenging for rusty disintegrated materials to use as a background, infusing his works with the spirit of the original location.
