Defi Gagliardo nace en villa real -Buenos Aires- en el seno de una familia tradicional italiana en una ciudad cosmopolita, pero en el barrio. Estudia diseño en la UBA, pero su espíritu ardoroso se enciende sobre los límites de la academia, de la que se nutre en los comienzos para luego transgredirlas creando Fase con otros artistas, un movimiento que condensa ilustración, motion graphic, música y experimentación. Este momento sirve de base para un desarrollo personal en donde las inquietudes se ramifican hacia distintos planos de acción. Pequeños gatitos son su inspiración para deformar trazos y llenar de colores paredes, telas, puertas de autos, pasto. Hacia 2001 es parte importante del renacimiento del Street art en Argentina, que surge por un lado como medio de comunicación directo con el espectador en plena crisis, al tiempo que genera espacios alternativos frente a la falta de galerías que se apropiaran de sus obras. Es así como espontáneamente animales, amigos y la calle se convierten en el material sobre el cual se plasman sus explosiones de colores y su constante búsqueda de reacción. Le huye al concepto y las definiciones escapándose con la constante mutación. Sus múltiples facetas van de la cocina al diseño de ropa. Lindo killer lleva su arte a prendas únicas y especiales que convierten a su portador en un cuadro ambulante. Si bien su ámbito natural es la calle, su obra se potencia cuando sus múltiples creaciones se presentan en una galería, esto tiene lugar en Londres, hacia 2003 y continua hasta hoy en Berlin, Los Ángeles, Barcelona, San Pablo, Buenos Aires.

Defi Gagliardo, was born in Villa real, Buenos Aires, into a traditional Italian family living in a small neighborhood in a cosmopolitan city. What began as innocent and casual play developed over the years, accompanying his first experiences of intervening in public spaces He studied design at the University of Buenos Aires, but his flammable spirit burned beyond the limits of academia, where it nurtured itself in the beginning, later transgressing them and creating Fase with other artists, a movement that synthesizes illustration, motion graphics, music and experimentation. This movement served as the basis for a personal development, in which curiosity branched out into distinct plans of action. Around 2001, he played an important part in the birth of Street Art in Argentina, which emerged as a medium of direct communication with the spectator in a time of crisis, while at the same time generating alternative spaces due to a lack of galleries willing to appropriate its works. It was in this way that animals, friends and the street were spontaneously transformed into the material on which his explorations of color and his constant search for reaction express themselves. He evades categorization and definition, escaping them through perpetual mutation. The many facets of his work range from the kitchen to fashion design. Lindo Killer brings his art to unique garments that transform the person wearing them into a mobile painting. While the street is his natural environment, his work achieves its potential when his many creations are exhibited in a single gallery space, as was done in London in 2003, and continues to be done today in Berlin, Los Angeles, Barcelona, Milan, Buenos Aires.
