1999 † 2011
KAWSE has been my first and only one Graffiti Writer alias for 12 years
I started to write at 15, in 1999 at Lille in the north of France. I learnt by myself and have been followed by some mates: SAKO & FAKI. Then I evolved with a toung talent named LAPIR. My motto was related to Hip-Hop culture: FAIL, FAIL AGAIN, FAIL BETTER!
As an as an headstrong, I sketched a lot and tried every categories of Graffiti untill I focused in big walls. Writing was my reply to the damage caused by the society. For me, the Graffiti writing worked as an VIRTUAL ANTIDOTE. At first, my graffitis were categorized as Wild-style or as Calligraphic style.
In 2001, I met CORE who recruited me in his big crew named DVD in which I opened my mind thanks to some unique members like SPYRE, ERONE, SOHO, NADA.. The discovery of new musics helped me to develop new styles related: more Graphic and Artistic such as the Organic style. From 2002 to the end of 2005, I was deeply involved in the group evolution. Then I quit & I continuted my way in the shadow
I have never let down the work on the letters and I kept my rebel soul. Although I painted around an 100 of pieces, I was barely known by the Graffiti niche. For few unsigned orders, I used the aerosol bombs without exploiting any Graffiti elements. I have never tried or want to sell my Graffiti production in the Art Market. I did not deal with local council therefore I declined all their hypocrital workshops. The Graffiti Writing is neither profitable nor a leisure! Underground spirit, I guess?
Although all my creative abilities continuited to elvove, my personnal production never gets a real attention. A problem that I found back in way with my work experiences as a graphic designer…
In 2008, I wanted to try something else by co-creating an electro crew named BACKTOBIONIC including a DJ & a Writer. We wanted to try to escape our reality through a spacey groove. From 2010 to 2014, I run the Electro Blog induced a reduction of my time to paint on the walls…
At the end of 2009, the life pressure was rising and I became a better Writer than ever. Netehertheless, in a full evolution, I had to attempt to save myself from the poorless therefore I was forced to miss in action in 2011
I have never try to write on wall although the Graffiti-Antidote is forever in my veins
