DANIEL FILADaniel Fila, also known as Krave, is a multi-faceted artist whose work ranges from mural installations to figurative and abstract paintings, animations and urban sculpture using a range of mediums, techniques and aesthetics. Born in Miami, Fila was influenced by his father, a commercial artist and began sketching as a young boy in order to express himself and distinguish his unique identity.
Ultimately, art led Fila to obtaining an extensive art education in some of the country’s most respected schools and on his path to urban culture and street visual art in public spaces. Fila was an early pioneer in Miami’s urban art scene. Still living in Miami, his most famous work is “The Sunbather”, a mural located on Biscayne Boulevard in Miami that achieved international exposure when it was featured in Michael Bay’s movie, “Pain and Gain”, starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson in 2003.
