Germán Bel, Fasim, also known as Germán Bel Ferrándiz, is a self-taught painter born in Barcelona, Spain (1972).

From a very early age, he started working in urban art, where he will be one of the pioneers of the Spanish scene.

Henry Chalfant played an important role in Fasim's career and will be a key piece in his later artistic development.

Fasim met Futura 2000 in Barcelona, from whom he learned the artistic creations on canvas and the beginning of urban art, today known as street art, in Europe.

In 1992, the artist traveled to Paris to the studio of JonOne and the BadBC at the Hôpital éphémère where he resided for a few days and contemplated the process of creation on canvas and the emergence of urban art in art galleries. He also joined 156allstarz crew.

After his return to Barcelona, he studied in several schools and regularly visited art galleries, where he discovered the works of modern and contemporary avant-garde artists such as Joan Miró, Clavé, Pablo Picasso, Antonio Saura, Frederic Amat, Antoni Tàpies, Miquel Barceló...

Fasim dwells within the urban expressionism although his current work would be within the neo contemporary.

A leading exponent of international street art, Fasim regularly exhibits his work and also creates large-format murals at festivals where artistic experimentation is the main motivation.

"(...) Police and New York City officials claimed in the 1970s that graffiti was an initiation crime leading to a criminal career. How wrong they proved to be. I have observed that an apprenticeship in graffiti has led more than a few teenage taggers and bombers to find brilliant careers as painters, designers, editors and filmmakers. I can find no better example of this phenomenon than Fasim." Henry Chalfant
