Yello JM Basquiat
" I have been greatly influenced by three major New York artists: Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. SAMO used to say: "When I work, I don't think about art, I try to think about life! "His addictions got the better of him much too early but his works are still alive, they have this urgency to which I am very attached."

Jef Aérosol
Jef Aérosol (born in Nantes in 1957, lives and works in Lille since 1984) is a French stencil artist of international renown and one of the founding artists of street art in France. It is on the walls of the streets of Tours that he put his first stencils in 1982. Since then, he has travelled the world's cities and glued or spray painted portraits of iconic personalities as well as anonymous people of all styles and ages. He has even stuck his now legendary "Sitting kid" on the Great Wall of China. His characters, often depicted on a scale of 1:1, are characterized by the almost exclusive use of black and white, and all his works are highlighted with this mysterious red arrow, the artist's trademark. More poetic than political, Jef Aerosol's message is above all humanistic. In the eyes of his characters pass all the emotions of the World. Each of his creations certainly speaks about him, his life, his culture, but the universal character of his work means that it also speaks about you, us, life and people...
