WISR is originally from New York but was raised in São Paulo, Brazil and London UK.
He attended Wimbledon School of Art in the 1990's but maintains that his influences came later after a trip to Brooklyn where he stayed with a group of musicians and artists. Taking street art to another angle he uses relief print to convey his ideas. Having come from a turbulent upbringing, his playfully chosen moniker reflects his view journey: "As I've got older... I've got wiser."
Although a relatively fresh artist to the contemporary art scene, WISR is already included in many important private collections worldwide.
