Born in 1985 - France
Bonus, from his real first name Karim, is a French artist born in 1985 in Argenteuil in the western suburbs of Paris.
He discovered graffiti in the 90s and made his first steps in the artistic world doing tags in the western suburbs of Paris. Practicing on the walls and the trains, the tags were a way for him to escape from his daily life while leaving an imprint on his way. More than an imprint or a trace, a signature: Bonus.
New York's graffiti production during the 80s is far from being the only source of inspiration for the young artist. Indeed he practiced boxing from a very young age, this sport instills a flow of creativity not negligible in him, developing a form of expression that oscillates between fragility and strength.
Fascinated by nature, his different elements nourish his imagination and he integrates his artistic research with olfactory and chromatic sensations that gradually enrich his style. From the urban application he dares to change support and uses a canvas instead by mixing techniques. He adds an abstract and colorful note to his compositions.
He mixes his memories, his past, his dreams and his passions on his canvases which depict an urban universe.
