International graffiti and street artist, Saturno (the Creatter) creates a stunning visual world of an oceanic post-apocalyptic Los Angeles with “Depths of LA”. The art exhibition includes a diverse collection of street art mixing both black and white ink illustrations on paper, to bright and deep-colored canvas pieces that showcase Saturno’s unique ability to create bold and captivating images without the use of drawing any lines.

Saturno’s collection is sure to scare, inspire, and mesmerize you all at once.

Born in 1979 in the small coastal town of 'Malgrat de Mar (Barcelona), his childhood was surrounded by VHS tapes, recreation centers, and cinema halls. As a child, near his home, he would contemplate the illuminated signs announcing the weekly films, which because of his young age, he was unable to watch. This circumstance combined with the mysticism of the seventh art, and provoked by his imagination, Saturno began his journey of no return towards the lobby of the local cinema. Once inside, surrounded by all the film art, he was able to hear the whispers of those "prohibited" films, inducing day after day hundreds of film posters passing in front of his eyes. It's just about there when he discovers his fascination for fantasy, horror, and sci-fi genres.
Inspired by all of this, Saturno started to draw at a very young age. His contact with graffiti is limited and totally self-taught; Saturno then began painting in 1994. His unique and recognizable style continues to strengthen over the years. Saturno’s technique and manipulation of color stands out, making him a global benchmark.
