I was born in 1979 in Targovishte, Bulgaria. People know me by the names of Naste, Nasimo, Kardami Kapila Das or by my real name Stanislav Trifonov. I started spraying Aerosol paint on walls in 1995 along with several friends artists and soon after we formed LBC (Los Bastardos Crew) – one of the first and most active street art crews on the Balkans. In 2000 I established a new crew and started a new kind of street art which mixes traditional and graffiti style.

#FineGraffArt came to be my personal crosspoint between contemporary painting and my previously developed street art style. 

I’ve been painting murals in Bulgaria, Canada, Great Britain, Germany, Austria, Italy, Belgium, Portugal, Poland, Czech Republic, Romania, Serbia, Greece, Kosovo, Turkey, India, China and Russia.
