Biography
Alexandre Monteiro alias Hopare, is a French emerging street art artist. Born in 1989 in Paris, he is passionate about urban architecture and the human whrilwind. He spent his childhood in Limours, Essone, and discovered grafitti at the age of 13 or 14 in an abandoned factory of the city. He was a pupil of Shaka (Known as Marcel Mithouard, a plastic and street artist), with whom he built a close and determinant friendship. When he was only 20, he started working for an interior designer who according to the artist, "Has influenced my way of drawing, with more and more straight, parallel and intermingling lines". The artist works as well in projects of interior designing, decoration and textile designing. He signed his first wall in 2006 and joined the group TSF Crew (a major street art movement with whom he did several common projects and festivals). Using aerosol bombs, brushes, inks and painting rolls, Hopare celebrates aesthetics. His almost perfect lines, sketch geometric and abstract curves. His work have a pencil like character and superimposing straight lines of great intensity. "What I'm looking for is the best trait, the perfect diamont", he insists. He is not limited by "freestyle" improvisation guides his hand. Spontaneity and randomness conduct the construction of virtous figurative elements. Numerous projects have been added to his street art: several exhibitions in galleries..... the Mayor of Limours assigned him his first job the signage of the new theater. He also coordinated his first exhibition, which was very succesful: 30 canvases were exhibited, and 23 sold. An eternal vagabond (Montreal, Paris, Hong Kong have been marked by his passage), the artist wishes to "offer the possibility of traveling to his spectators".
