It’s been a while I wanted to paint Salvador Dali and his crazy moustache! I realised his portrait based on a famous photo of the artist showing off his facial hair while looking intensely at the viewer. In addition, one of his ‘soft watches’ is seen melting on the floor. The portrait is located on LukeJacob‘s shutter in East London, UK. It’s mostly visible at nights and on Sundays.

I recently visited Vitry Sur Seine near Paris where I painted this tribute portrait to one of the greatest French singers, Edith Piaf. The artwork is based on a photo of a young Edith looking up to the sky, as if she was dreaming. I hope this can be an inspiration for others.

Back in La Butte aux Cailles in the 13e district in Paris to paint my favourite wall once again. This piece is a tribute to street art, colours, paint – that conveys a strong message: no more blank walls!
