Dourone | Vantaa Finland
Fabio Lopez aka DOURONE was born in Madrid and raised in the countryside, soaking up the “art and affection” provided by his family. In 1999, he began displaying his creations in the streets under the name DOURONE that he retains today.

His works are often defined as figurative illustration, classical, and surreal. He draws nspiration from artists like MC Escher, Mohlitz Philippe, Jean Giraud (Moebius), Giovanni Battista Piranesi.
Fabio has exhibited in Spore Gallery, Mad is Mad Gallery (Madrid), and Art Reproductions Museum (Bilbao). He has been published in the International Herald Tribune, El Pais, Staff Magazine, and El Duende Magazine.
