Darco

Né en 1968 - France

BIOGRAPHIE

Darco was born in 1968 in Germany (Bielefeld) and moved to France in 1976. There, Darco developed an early interest in Art and more specifically in Graffiti. Darco painted his first piece in a suburb of Paris in 1984. Since the early 1980's, he has received worldwide recognition for his style of writing, and is credited for influencing generations of graffiti-writers across the globe.

Darco specialises in the art of lettering. Although he retains the graphic side of the outline, his style is often labeled 3D. Originality in style, perspectives and the dynamics of varying forms and colors are the focal point of Darco's work.

In 1985, together with "Gawki", Darco created the legendary writer crew 'FBI', now an international artist collective, with members like Loomit, DAIM or Bomber. Through their originality, choice of subject, concept, style, size and quality of their work, coupled with extensive global travel, the crew acquired the respect of graffiti artists.

Since 1992 Darco has held the title of being one of Europe's first Graffiti-Writers to have acquired the official status of "artist". He is also a member of the American crew UA and the Australian crew TFC. Alongside artistic research, Darco works in several areas of the artistic industry, including decoration, design, fashion, set and stage design, and as an Art Director, adviser and consultant. He also regularly works within Europe, South Africa, USA, Australia and Canada.

Darco’s work has been exhibited in the museums Palais de Tokyo, Centre Georges Pompidou, Kaltmann Museum, Musée des Arts et Traditions Populaires and the Grand Palais in Paris, France. Today, Darco continues to work in a consistent and meticulous manner remaining faithful to the essence of Graffiti-Writing and all that he has worked towards.
