The perfect present : Artsper's gift card


Born in: 1975



Babs was born in Paris in 1975. He is a French "former vandal". He discovered graffiti at the age of 11 in Vitry-sur-Seine where he starts tagging the walls. A self-taught artist, he is considered to be one of the best writers of his generation. Lettering represents the basis of his work, and he is one of the most forerunners of the French "wildstyle".

Since 1990 he has been painting with the 3HC crew. In 1992 he started painting freestyle on trains with the DSP crew, spontaneously and instinctively. Babs has produced hundreds of graffiti under different pseudonyms. These works, that are systematically being erased, are documented in photograph and videos, but due to the fact that they are illegal, it is forbidden to keep any trace of them.

Vandalism is a lifestye and Babs wrote several texts about it. He is a purist of the style, always pushing the limits of this means of expression and is active in one of the most radical areas of Parision graffiti, with the crews UV and TPK. He paints regularly with writers such as Frez, Keag, Sezam, Fuzi, Rap or Trane.

Babs explores the art of transgression and its multiple facettes. He collaborated with artists Keag and Sore at the production of their book, Pimp my bitch, in 2010. They photographed body painting performances in the Paris metro - they painted on nude feminine models. In 2009, he was invited to show in the exhibition "Graffiti Etat des lieux" at the galerie du Jour agnès b, where he painted with Keag and Sore under the name Graffeur Delight.

In 2010 he left the underground and started to paint on walls again. He collaborated with Suby, Keag, Dem 189 and Seth (Julien Malland). In 2012 he produced a series of canvases as an hommage to piet Mondrian and with his first crew, 3HC. He was invited to show at the Palais de Tokyo in the exhibition "Dans les Entrailles du Palais de Tokyo" by Hugo Vitrani an organzed by Dem 189, Lek & Sowat. He continues to write on walls in France and abroad.
