To celebrate Women’s Day and raise money for Breast Cancer research, 100 female street artists gathered in London this Saturday to paint a large mural at Leake Street, also know as ‘Banksy’s tunnel’. The first edition of ‘Femme Fierce’ was a great success and I had an amazing day with some very talented painters (Saki & Bitches, Hannah Chloe, Thieu, Zina… to only mention a few).
I designed this funny piece which features three nuns: the Mother Superior saying ‘Girls… Reload!’ while two younger nuns in the background are ready to spray. I wanted the artwork to echo with the whole event and cheer up the participants… Go girls!

It was great painting with British painter Hannah Chloe this week end this soft piece featuring a fox and one of Hannah’s native american ladies holding hands. Her amazing technique mixes stencil, free-hand spraying and painting with brush and acrylic paint.

This week end I travelled to Barcelona to take part in the art festival ‘Ús’. Its goal is to dynamise and give a new life to abandoned public spaces by bringing art. The festival featured a great line up of street artists, as well as installations, workshops and concerts.
I painted a big brick wall (6m x 4m) with a revised edition of my ‘Fuck The System’ piece. The artwork shows a happy family from the 50′s holding spray cans and a paint bucket, while standing next to the words ‘Fuck The System with Street Art! Fun for the whole family!’.

‘The Tiger’ is a very colourful piece that represents a tiger inspired by traditional asian art. It was painted on Hackney Road in London (at the corner with Cremer Street) and will remain on this site for a few weeks. Thanks to Art Under the Hood for lending the panels and street artist Sr.X for helping painting.

New piece in partnership with Tokyobike - painted next to Old Street in London.
I took inspiration from a picture from the brand’s blog and included one of their stylish bikes in the composition. The girl is standing in this colourful rain. Just waiting. ‘Plic’. ‘Ploc’.

This Sunday I painted a tribute piece to Nelson Mandela in Acton Town (West London). The mural is around 4,5m long and features a large stencil of Mandela raising his fist, the South African flag in the background as well as the wording ‘Dream. Fight.’
The project is supported by the Acton Community Forum which help street artists having permission to paint walls on social estates. I would like to thank them as well as to artist Sr.X (featured below) for helping out.

Two small stencils for Halloween featuring a pug dog dressed up as a pumpkin and a grumpy cat dressed up as a vampire. The duo was painted at night in Chance Street (London) as part of a documentary for French TV Channel ‘France5′ (picture below).

Very proud of this collaboration with the very talented street artist Sr.X. Our styles and techniques are different but actually work very well together.
The piece was painted along Regent’s Canal in London, a famous spot for graffiti artists since the 80′s. It was filmed by a crew of journalists from France 5 (one of the French’s national main TV channels) for a documentary about ‘London by Night’ to be broadcasted on the 7th of December.
