One of my main research interests is street art as an artistic and social phenomenon. I have been writing about street art since 2006.

In 2014 I published my first book on the topic entitled The Street Art World.

My most recent book, Street Art and the Environment, discusses how art may influence the relationship between humans and nature. The book was independently published by Almendros de Granada Press in June 2018.

My research on street art has led to an interest in spatial justice and the publicness of public space.

From October 2018 to May 2019 I will be co-coordinating the research theme Urban Creativity at the Pufendorf Institute for Advanced Studies at Lund University.
