Wes21, or Remo Lienhard, is a graffiti artist that was born in Biel, Switzerland in May of 1989. His artistic endeavors started in 2001 when he began to take an interest in painting. Several years later in 2009, Wes21 attended design school, ultimately becoming a graphic designer. This led Wes21 to become a freelance illustrator/designer, engaging in such projects as large scale murals, canvases, and 3D sculptures to add an unpredictable side to what’s typically expected of graffiti artists. read more

Gregos is a french street artist who started to display his face on the walls of Paris.

He invented his own 3D concept using all the techniques he has developed and taught himself over the years, and creates a replicate of his face, tongue out or smiling, that he paints and glues on the walls of Paris. Each face is a sort of self-portrait of the day to express his humors, his past, present, and future. At first, the faces were only blanks, and the message was the tongue out. Gregos’ street art concept is successful at inspiring interaction between the faces and by passers. As of today, more than 500 faces have been installed, in Paris mostly, but also in other towns of France and of the world including Europe, USA, Japan and South America. read more

Can you introduce yourself?

I am cartoonist since 1999 but also the author of the reference book on graffiti: Paris Tonkar (published in 1991) … I also practiced photography for many years as the paint. Indeed, I began to paint on canvas in the early 90s from the moment I could no longer manage the writing of my book, my studies, sport and my desire to express myself with bombs painting. Before there were fanzines like “The Zulu Letter”. My book was a new project as offering an overview of the graffiti movement that was born in Paris and everywhere including in uptown. For two years I am also the chief editor of an eponymous magazine that covers art news and time for old school graffiti. read more

The most famous french book “Paris Tonkar” will be soon reedited. I wanted to know more about this project and interview one of the author of the third worlwide graffiti book: Tarek Ben Yakhlef.

Tarek you are one of the authors of the most famous French graffiti book. How do you were connected with the graffiti and why did you choose to present this art on a book?
Sorry for my English, but I’ll try answering clearly and explaining my story. Well, I discovered graffiti art in London subway during my first travel in this country in 1986. I was living in Brixton and the subway line near my house was fully painted by writers. I don’t remember which writers were in this area but I was very impressed by them style and it was for me the first time that I observed this kind of graffiti in subway. I was young in 1986 (15 years old) and for me graffiti wasn’t visible in subway. In Paris, after my journey in London (one week alone to discover the city and all subway’s line), I tried to do like English writers on my books and few times in my street. At the beginning, I was alone and after a few weeks with one of my friend, we practice in the subway (only a few times) and always more in the street. Three years later, I decided to write a book about this art because I need to speak on graffiti not like a graffiti writer but like an author. I love art and I need to write to feel good. So, I start to take pictures in French subway, on RER line, in city and suburbs with Sylvain Doriath who was a writer. With him, I met a lot of writers and after that the adventure of Paris Tonkar began ! My experience and my desire to write a book became the first French book on graffiti and first one in Europe. I was 19 years old. read more
