 ABOUT THE ARTISTS:

Serty31™, is the artist’s name of French Graffiti Designer and Art Director Alexandre Rajkovic. Born in 1978, he works and lives in Paris. His approach is focused on a graphic design with pure lines, bright colors and an elaborate aesthetic, inspired by the Manga universe of his childhood. He discovered graffiti in the mid-1980s on the palisades that surrounded the major construction works of the Louvre Museum.

Contemporary  artist and poet, and major figure of Street Art, Miss.Tic, develops an iconic pictorial universe that she prints in the « pochoir » method allover the walls of Paris since 1985. She draws on women stereoptypes and subverts their image with  clever quotes that defend   women’s liberty. 

Jules Dedet Granel, aka L’Atlas, born in 1978, studied calligraphy in different countries before  creating his own universal pictorial language. A major figure of street art, he is known for his painted facades and  his monumental performances carried out directly on the ground on historical sites, such as the immense compass commissioned by the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris (2008), or at the Place du Capitole (2012) in Toulouse.  

Sebastien Boileau  aka “Mr. D” is a French artist who was influenced by the American Pop Art and Graffiti movement of the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Born in Versailles, France, Mr. D began his artistic endeavors in Paris in 1987 at the age of 14. In 1989, Mr. D created his first piece of canvas art, as well as his first large scale mural. In the early-90s he began to travel the world painting in remote countries like Sierra Leone, Tunisia, Senegal, and many western destinations.
