Nasty’s initial graffiti pieces evolved into versatile, colorful and vivid letterings off his renowned pseudonym „NASTY“ as a simple tag or as an elaborate piece, which takes up the most space in the image composition and therefore comes to the center of attention. Furthermore, he utilizes drips, splashes, shadow casts, as well as iconic graffiti symbols and references like stars and aureole to embellish and highlight the intricate works of art. Typically there are also significant statements on Nasty’s art works, such as, ”Artistes en Cavale“, ”Son of Liberty“, “Rep Your City”and many more. The visual qualities of Nasty’s pieces usually involve bright and vivid color choices as well as great contrasts.
Besides Nasty’s main focus of traditional graffiti writing, he found his creativity especially in spraying unusual surfaces like, subway maps, metal subway signs and ceramic tiles from the Parisian subway system, compressed spray cans. All those unconventional materials have become Nasty’s signature over his artistic path. Because his art works represent a variety of different materials and surfaces, each of his pieces of art has a totally unique and individual expression in the look and feel of it.
