Biography

Poes lives and works between Lyon, Paris, Marrakech and Berlin. He began tagging in 1998, when he was in high school.

Over the past ten years he has developed his own style, first by working on letters, combining the influences of conventional tags and flops in new york with the "euro-rail" style of the years 2000.

Influenced by comics, he started painting characters next to his letters. He draws inspiration from the many trips he takes and from meeting many renowned graffiti artists. In 2001 he began to paint on canvas and the letters disappeared little by little from his work.

This is what the artist says about his work:

"In opposition with a morose time when fear counts more than dreams, I am trying to create something colorful, personal, dreamlike, sometimes surreal and often funny".
