Mist - Available works
Born in Paris in 1972, Mist discovered his passion for graffiti along the rails of the RER during his adolescence. He studied graphic arts at the Ecole Estienne, where he honed a particular style based on lettering and classic characters.
In 1991, when he was 19, he participated in the exhibition “Graffiti Art” at the Musée National des Monuments Français alongside such international artists as Keith Haring, Futura, Rammellzee, and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
Mist is among the few artists with a graffiti background to develop his talents on walls, canvases, and volume. In 1996 he created his first designer toy, inspired by the mischievous imp Malus, his favorite character. The figures he designs for the company Bonustoyz, which he founded in 2000, are collected around the world. In addition, his collaborations with Medicom toys (Japan), Kid Robot (USA), and Artoyz (France) have made him a renowned artist in this field.
For more than a decade, Mist has worked out of his studio in Montpellier. Drawing inspiration from graffiti aesthetics, his years spent in school, and the varied materials used in paintings and sculptures, he has established himself as a major figure in contemporary urban art.
