Anser Nineone is a graffiti artist born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. He has been painting since the age of 11. His work contrasts the more traditional fine art styles and techniques, inspired by other graffiti artists, skateboarding, and hip-hop culture. He uses a range of techniques when working in the studio, such as mixing oil paint, acrylics, markers, airbrush and spray paint to achieve a unique blend of textures and styles. Anser's work draws inspiration from everyday life and situations around him. Tattoos, music, art, and nature are all inspiring for him.
Anser spent time in Berlin between 2016/17 learning large scale mural painting from some of Europe's top mural artists, specifically artists painting nature realism. Anser has worked on many projects and events such as building sized landscapes/portraits, several advertising commissions, and other corporate/private murals. Anser NineOnes has participated in several graffiti festivals including City Of Gold, Meeting of Styles and others.
Anser currently works as a mural artist while apprenticing at one of Johannesburg's premier tattoo shops, 1933 Classic Tattoos. He continues to paint graffiti and pursue his passion for making art in the studio.
