Lives and works in Paris, France.
It was on a trip to New York City in 1971 that he saw his first wild art graffiti. They were popping up everywhere : on the subway and around the basketball courts. Graffiti painted with a marker, like nervous signatures with a crown, allover NY, and big letters filled with spirals and many colours. These miniatures made him very curious.
