Gola Hundun a.k.a. Göla was born in Cesena, Italy 1982.

Gola Hundun’s work shows the relationship between human beings and the biosphere. This consideration combined with the conscious decision to live as a vegetarian since the age of 16 positions the artist and his work closer to the animal sphere to the human sphere.
He explores themes such as collaboration vs. domination, shamanism, a return to the earth, vegetarianism, energies and mysticism.

Gola’s first introduction into the art world began with a classical artistic training at Ravenna´s high school of arts in Italy at the early age of 12 years old when he did his first steps related with the Street Art doing the traditional graffiti’s lettering styles.  At the age of 14 he returned at the home’s privacy to create his first illustrations and paintings.

Gola Hundun continues his studies at Bologna’s Academy where he got a degree in Fine Arts. In 2004 he moved to Barcelona, where he is still living and working. In Barcelona he was influenced by the local graffiti & street art and it is where he decides to bring his creations back to the street’s walls.
The late 2000’s was a period of growing and sporadic activity whilst travelling between Italy, Spain and around Europe. In 2010 Gola took an art residency semester in Quebec, Canada, where began his artistic career on a global scale. From the completion of his residency to-date Gola’s travelled around the world exhibition in group and solo shows in Sao Paulo Brazil (2011), Jenin Palestine (2011), Moscow Russia (2012), Tokyo Japan (2012) ,Almaty in Kazakhstan (2013) and recently U.S.A.
