As a boy renomed
« Homo Sapiens » however I feel
more like a « Neanderthal » man
which remained the most resistant
Born in France, under the rain at Lille. By year of birth, I belong to the economic social group named « the millennials » better known as … « the sacrificed generation »
Thanks to my parents, I could be seen as creative-born. I have an artistic mind and I need to express myself freely as much it is still possible
My ultimate goal will be to direct some Films
At 5, everyday, after 6pm at school, I was waiting for my mom to get back home. The monitor forced the kids to watch TV. One of the TV shows was the Original Horror series entitled “V” that is the best speaking about the RESISTANCE
At 9, during the 90s at school (again) I learnt a brand new word on a stray book. One day, I used it and the teacher denied the word. Following stupidly their leader, 97% of kids booed me!
First time that I felt a such unfair pressure however I did not lost heart providing her the written proof. Therefore in front of the kids, she had to admit that she ignored it… Since then, my pripority in life remains the TRUTH
In 98, I wanted to mix music as a DJ. However I have never success to afford those expansive vinyls & real decks therefore in 99 I practised an other activity related to HIP-HOP but more essentially free: GRAFFITI WRITING
I started offcially at 15 but I have been drawing since my 3-years old
My activities were
1999 † 2011
2003 † 2012
In order to get more free time to paint some Graffitis, I worked in feeelance as a Art Director and Graphic Designer
World Wild Web.
I discovered & enjoyed internet 1.0. in 1999. I studied the Graphic Design from 2001 to 2003. To share my own projects, I started to create my own websites in 2005 (via ADSL). I totally disapprove the current web 2.0. and the upcoming META Version…
I don’t need to copy other to create and try to not do it unconsciously as much it is possible. The Life and also music are my main influences
1997-2007: HIP-HOP Culture
2003-2008: TRIP-HOP & UK Musics
2008-2014: ELECTRO Culture
2012-20??: TECHNO Music
2018-2022: HARDCORE TECHNO
I am also inspired by the CYBERPUNK Culture, the UNDERGROUND Cinema and the TRANSGRESSION Cinema movement. My humour comes from the reading of belgian cartoon drawn & written by GOTLIB
2002 † 2005
My production made a little impression, I was recruited in 2002 in a big local Graffiti crew
2007 † 2012
After some promising years in freelance, I opened my own Creative Studio in 2007
Electro Music Project.
2008 † 2014
Bored by the slowness of my area, I co-create an music crew to make some Events & a Blog
My highlight period was 2002 to 2008.
I use many aliases in coherence with every category I do (or did) although at the end of the day my name remains SIMON.

Opressed by the recession (and some theeth problems), I shut down my Graphic Studio in 2011-12. As 80% of my friends had already done, I thought about get out of France. In contrast to them, I hope I could dot it without having the budget for…
Missing in Action.
2012 — 2019
I had to save my life. Therefore, as what they called a « Boomerang kid », I could not allow myself to take some time to design any of my personnal ideas. I even had to stop definitely to make Graffiti in 2011.
My artistic silent period persisted for seven painful years!
During that period whitout drawing, I started to make some music playlists in order to mix them. Influenced by their storytelling, I began also to write many scenarii
In 2015, I quit my hometown LILLE for an other slowness & darkness town named PARIS where I still survive
Art Director & Graphic Designer
When I was looking for joining any agency, I stayed mainly unemployed. My profesionnal book has no effect on the market!?
In fact, the recruiters prefered exploited any young talentless personn for the lower salary in accordance with the orders coming from stock echange. (Read more about: HERE)
One more major economic crisis came throught the Coronavirus. The designer work became impossible. Therefore, I was forced to retire in 2020; at 37…
I will never work again in this sector or in any digitized profession.
It is quite sad to say, if you suffer too much you are not able to product.
When you suffer less but subtencially, you will improve your creative skills
in late 2019
I knew work as a creative was definitely over. Whatever I will do, I finally belong to the « sacrificed generation ». Indeed, the sytsem did succed to fuck my destiny. Therefore as a throwback, I started some brand new projects and I have so much to say…
HARDCORE SINCE 1999
Now, the truth can be only spread in the Undergroud nethertheless I speak to everyone
Officialy in 2020
Designing free & committed visuals
Fighting against the RFID chip
(especially the subcutaneous)
Mixing Underground music as a catharsis
Storyteller — Writer.
Since 2012 I have never stopped to write stories (Scennarii, Novels)
Currently, I am very productive with my new projects just in case I will be forced to stop again…
Since May 2021

When I made Graffiti my motto was:
FAIL, FAIL AGAIN, FAIL BETTER
Now the motto for my Comeback is:
IF SIMON SAYS NO YOU CAN SAY NO TOO
In that corrupted world, I had to work by myself so I decided to become a craftman: a painter indoor & outdoor

Past and Present
