Who am i ?

 

EN

Hello my name is Dark.

I'm a Parisian Street Artist & Calligraph. Workin' in Graffiti since 2012 & Calligraph since 2016.

Since their discovery during my school years of design and graphics, letters and their layouts have become obsession. Calligraphies, alphabets, Gothic, Uncial, Cyrillic, Katakana, I observed them, absorbed them and merged them to create my own means of expression.

Under my brushes, bombs or digital pens, melted in an abstract style, conventional letters no longer exist, filling delimited shapes in which they are drawn as under the action of an automatic writing. Suggested slogans, ideas. And create as many emotions as if they were really decipherable.

Je suis un street artiste et calligraphe parisien travaillant dans le graffiti depuis 2012 et dans la calligraphie depuis 2016 

Depuis leur découverte durant mes années d’école de design et de graphisme, les lettres et leurs tracés sont devenus mon obsession. Les calligraphies, les alphabets, la gothique, l’onciale, le cyrillique, le katakana, je les a observés, absorbés puis fusionnés pour créer mon propre moyen d’expression.

Sous mes pinceaux, bombes ou stylets numériques, fondues dans un style abstrait, les lettres conventionnelles n’existent plus, remplissent des formes délimitées dans lesquelles elles se dessinent comme sous l’action d’une écriture automatique. Suggèrent des slogans, des idées. Et suscitent autant d’émotions que si elles étaient réellement déchiffrables.
