Biography
A self-taught artist, A-MO was born in Bordeaux and began urban art during late 90's. Since then, he has been experimenting with stencil and has developed a technique where one overlays tags (stylized signatures). The tags are mostly created with spray paint or a marker, and overlap like the layers of oil painting in a "classic painting". The artist calls this "Paintag". When the viewer is close enough, he can only observe an entanglement of signatures and words of various sizes, colors and forms. It's when one takes a step back that one can perceive another angle: one forgets about the tags and the subject unveils itself. It is often considered to be a visible deterioration of the streets, therefore is quickly cleaned up and covered. The tag is deliberately highlighted here, as it is the main component of his works. Moreover, A-MO offers another perspective, which is more positive and out of sync, of this discipline that remains close to graffiti. A colorful and instinctive universe, the "urban jungle" is his main place of expression and nature is his favorite theme. The artist doesn't want to restrict himself and therefore works with galleries but individuals too, or even on the street and continues to paint illegally, so that everyone can be a part of his art "Working on the street and canvas is very fulfilling for me and they complement one another. I don't give more importance to one over the other, they are both important to me, these are essential elements for my artistic and creative evolution" says A-MO. He won the national urban art competition of Vibrations Urbaines in 2015. A-MO was also part of Bernard Magrez's private collection in 2016.
